    Can I use plain old dirt missed with water to make a hamon. Or should I steal some of my daughter's clay.

    I couldn't say for mud, but if you took some clay kitty litter (clean) crunched it up fairly well, then hydrated it to peanut butter texture, you have a chance.

    I think most any old dirt would have too much organic material and/or sand in it to work well. If you can find some good ole Southern red clay, strain the sand out of it, and mix it to the right consistency, it should work though.

    Years ago, I dug some clay up from a creek bank, and made stuff out of it. Too much sand and it didn't have any strength. If I'd fired it a bit hotter to melt the sand, it may have worked, butt*….
