The Secret Formula for Living Clay is a set of instructions written inside a scroll that tell how to craft clay that will animate terracotta warriors. The scroll was found and used by Fung and his father Bing in the Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness episode "Terror Cotta".
The formula adds additional instructions to regular terracotta crafting. According to Fung, they are as follows:
Once the terracotta warrior has been completely crafted with this mixture, the instructions then say to speak the incantation: "Chung toh lai shun hoa." The terracotta warrior animates within moments.
- The gan cao plant (traditional and simplified Chinese: 甘草?; pinyin: gān cǎo), also known as Chinese liquorice, is native to Asia and is typically used in traditional Chinese medicine. For the specifics of its medicinal use, see here.
- The formula's third ingredient, powdered mica, has traditionally been used for decoration in pottery because of the glittering effect it creates in the mixture.
