  • What else can I use? Can't find Fire Clay


    I am on the step where I should mix fine sand, fireclay, and water, to help set the floor fire bricks. However, I cannot find fire clay anywhere around here.

    Are there any alternatives for this?

    Thank you

    You can just use dry sand. You may need the clay for the rest of the build though, try builders suppliers that the trades use, call a bricklayer to ask where they go, or try a pottery or ceramics supplier. You are looking for fire clay, bricklayers clay, ball clay, all powdered clay in bags, any of these will suffice. You don't want potters clay in a plastic state.

      I should have posted this in the other request for materials you made. I have maybe 5-10 lbs left if you want it. I'm in East Cobb.
