Hardened Clay has the same blast resistance as most other Stone blocks, which is significantly higher than a regular block of clay. A block of Hardened Clay, when one meter away from an Explosion, will protect any blocks behind it. However, the hardened clay block itself will be destroyed in the process.
Hardened Clay can be "stained" many different colors, like Wool, Concrete Powder (upcoming), and Glass. Simply place 8 blocks around the edge of a Crafting Table interface, with the desired dye in the middle square (as pictured).
- Stained Clay retains a darkened hue after being dyed from the original red/brown.
- As of update 1.8, Stained Clay replaced Wool in Desert Temples.
- Hardened Clay has a smoother look compared to Wool.
- Hardened Clay Blocks are useful for creating pixel art, or creating houses. Like Bricks, they are not used for anything other than building.
