Wondering how to make Terracotta in Minecraft? Minecraft is filled to the brim with various recipes, and not all of them are clear in how to craft them, or what they are even for. However, we've got the lowdown on everything you need to know about this decorative block, including recipes and uses. Here's how to make Terracotta in Minecraft. 

How To Make Terracotta In Minecraft: What Is Terracotta?

Before getting into how to make Terracotta in Minecraft, you first have to understand why you should be making it at all. While many aspects of the game serve some kind of practical purpose, terracotta is actually just a decorative element. It is a hardened clay that maintains the same level of blast resistance as stone, yet can be all the more colourful. Terracotta can be dyed into one of sixteen different colours, which will help make your building projects stand out.

Now onto how to make Terracotta in Minecraft, and for this you are going to need some coal and a block of clay. Open up your furnace menu, where you must place the coal (or any other applicable fuel source) in the lower place. That of course means that the block of clay can be placed in the top spot. Keep your furnace menu open while the clay is steadily burned. Now that the block of clay has been properly smelted in the furnace, you will have produced Terracotta, which you must place in your inventory to complete the process. That's how to make Terracotta in Minecraft

As an addition, Terracotta can actually be found in some areas like the Badland Biomes, desert pyramids, and even warm underwater ruins, although all will differ in colour.

Moving past how to make Terracotta in Minecraft, and onto how to dye Terracotta. Sometimes you just want to add a bit of colour to your projects, and Terracotta is the way to do it. But how do you change the colour of this hardened clay block? There is a pretty simple solution to this. Head into the crafting menu, where you will see a 3x3 grid. Place your preferred colour dye in the middle, whether that be cyan, pink, or lime, and then surround the remaining eight slots with your Terracotta blocks. This will then produce eight coloured Terracotta blocks.

That is how you make Terracotta in Minecraft. Want to know a little about the recent changes introduced to the game? We've got the Minecraft 1.18 patch notes that have all the details.
