How do you go about storing the collected clay from cutting bricks....does it harden after its wet? Or could I chuck in a bag until ready to use?

Because the brick dust from cutting comes from bricks that have been fired it is really a grog or fine aggregate. It is not like sticky unfired clay, however it does work ok. Be careful fired brick dust is dangerous to inhale, wear a mask.
