Sand and Clay can be found near islands under the water. In addition to islands, there are ridges that have small pieces of rock embedded within them. This includes some clay and sand. Get into melee range and hit it with maximum power with your hook to collect it.

Leave your wet bricks to dry on the Raft. It appears to take approximately half a game day for the wet bricks to turn into dry bricks. Upon drying, the bricks will become a light gray color
