Add water to the soil and clay mixture, slowly and gradually. The mixture should hold a shape, but be soft enough to fill the mold. To give the red brick form or shape, pour the mixture of clay, soil and water into the molds. If you’re using a row mold, a series of openings for several bricks, pour steadily but quickly across all the bricks so they’ll be ready at the same time.
