A Terracotta block
|First Appearance||1.6.1 (PC)|
|Type of Block||Solid Block|
|Data Values||Hex: AC|
Terracotta has the same blast resistance as most other Stone blocks, which is significantly higher than a regular block of clay. A block of terracotta, when one meter away from a Creeper Explosion, will protect any blocks behind it. However, the terracotta block itself will be destroyed in the process.
Terracotta can be smelted to produce Glazed Terracotta.
Terracotta can be "stained" many different colors, similar to Wool, Concrete Powder, 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.
- Terracotta has a smoother look compared to Wool.
- Terracotta Blocks are useful for creating pixel art, or creating houses. Like Bricks, they are not used for anything other than building.
