Yes, let it all dry out, then add water to create slurry to reclaim.

Subject: [Clayart] Reclaiming 30 lbs of clay

 I have about 30 pounds of clay in various states of wetness/dryness
that I
 want to reconstitute for throwing. (I thoroughly cleaned out my Peter
 Pugger after several years because the clay in the barrel was to dry
to be
 extruded.)

 Some is hard as bisque, although none was fired. Other pieces are wet
and
 sloppy.

 Would you dry out everything and then wet it? Would you put it in a
lot of
 water?

 It's been a long time since I've had this much scrap.

 Thanks for sharing your experience,
 Bonnie
