The main RuneScape Wiki has an article on: Soft Clay
The Old School RuneScape Wiki also has an article on Soft Clay.

Soft Clay is an item which can be used with Pottery wheels to craft at lower levels. It is also an item required to proceed through some quests.

Creating Soft Clay

To make soft clay the player must:

  1. Mine clay (requiring only level 1 mining and giving 5 experience when mined)
  2. Use a bucket of water or jug of water on the dry clay to create soft clay.

Using Soft Clay

There are two locations with pottery facilities, including a pottery oven and pottery wheel: The Barbarian Village and the Crafting Guild (which requires level 40 crafting and for the player to be wearing a brown apron for entry)

  1. First the soft clay must be used on the pottery wheel to make an unfired object (unfired pot, unfired bowl, or unfired pie dish)
  2. The unfired product is then used on the pottery oven to harden it. This step has a possibility of failure.

Due to the availability of pots and bowl from shops and item spawns found around Gielinor, pottery with soft clay is mostly useful for training crafting and for the large-scale production of Pie Dishes.
