Ever wondered how to make a wheel in Little Alchemy? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. In just 5 easy steps, you’ll be rolling in no time. Little Alchemy is the addictive world-building game where you combine basic elements to create more complex items. Starting with just air, earth, fire and water, you can make over 500 items. The wheel is a key discovery that opens up tons of new crafting possibilities. So grab your phone, tablet or laptop and let’s get crafting. By the end of this quick tutorial, you’ll have discovered the wheel and be well on your way to unlocking exciting new elements. The wheel – it’s revolutionary!
Gather the Ingredients: Earth, Stone and Fire
To make a wheel in Little Alchemy, you’ll need to gather three basic ingredients: earth, stone, and fire.
- Start with earth. This is your base ingredient and the foundation for many other items in Little Alchemy. Earth represents soil, dirt, land, the ground—you get the idea.
- Next up, make stone by combining earth and fire. Fire hardens the earth into stone. Stone provides hardness and durability.
- Now you have earth and stone, two of the three ingredients needed to make a wheel. The final ingredient is fire. Fire represents heat, warmth, and energy.
- To make a wheel, combine stone and fire. The fire shapes and molds the stone into a circular form: a wheel! The wheel is one of the most important human inventions, enabling transportation, the creation of pottery, and many other advancements.
There you have it, a wheel made in just four simple steps. With earth, stone, fire, and a little alchemical magic, you now have the power to advance civilization! Well, at least in the little world of Little Alchemy. Have fun with your new wheel—maybe you can use it to make a cart or pottery. The possibilities are endless once you have the fundamentals down.
Combine Earth and Stone to Make Mud
To make a wheel in Little Alchemy, you’ll need to start with the basics.
First, combine earth and stone to get mud. Mud is essential for shaping and molding new elements.
- Earth + Stone = Mud
Next, let that mud dry out by combining it with air. Air dries out wet mud and turns it into clay.
- Mud + Air = Clay
Now, roll and shape that clay into a circular form to make a basic wheel shape. Combine the clay wheel with fire to harden it, and you’ve got yourself a wheel!
- Clay (wheel shape) + Fire = Wheel
A wheel opens up a whole new world of discovery in Little Alchemy. You can now make wagons, carts, pottery, mills, and more. The wheel is a game-changer.
With a little earth, stone, air, fire, and patience, you’ll be rolling in no time. Making a wheel may seem tricky at first, but follow these simple steps and you’ll have mastered it in no time. Now get out there and start creating – the possibilities are endless once you get your wheels turning!
Add Fire to the Mud to Create Clay
To make a wheel, you first need to create clay by combining mud and fire.
Add Fire to Mud
- Locate the mud you created in a previous step. Tap on it to select it.
- Next, tap on the fire element to select it.
- With mud and fire both selected, tap the combine button at the bottom of the screen.
- The mud and fire will merge to create clay! You’ll see the clay icon appear on the screen.
Congratulations, you now have clay which can be shaped and molded into various forms. Clay is a very useful element to have in Little Alchemy. It acts as a base for many other creations like bricks, pottery, and eventually, wheels.
Clay can be thought of as a mixture of earth, water, and heat. In the game, we are simulating this process by combining the mud (earth + water) with fire (heat) to produce clay. Many important inventions were made possible by the discovery of how to make and utilize clay, like pottery, bricks, and wheels.
Wheels specifically revolutionized transportation and mobility. Once you have clay, you’re well on your way to creating a wheel. Clay acts as the raw material that with some shaping and molding, can be transformed into this simple but transformative invention.
The next steps will show you how to take the clay you’ve created and fashion it into a wheel. With some experimenting, you’ll be rolling in no time! Little Alchemy is all about making discoveries through combining elements, just like early humans did when they first created clay and eventually the wheel. Have fun with it!
Leave the Clay to Harden Into Ceramics
Once you have the clay, it’s time to shape it into a wheel. This step requires patience as you need to leave the clay to harden into ceramics.
Let the Clay Dry
After molding the clay into a circle with a hole in the middle, set it aside to air dry completely. This usually takes 1 to 2 days. As it dries, check on your creation regularly. If cracks start to form, use your fingers to gently smooth them out. You want an even, unbroken surface.
- Make sure the clay is in a spot with good air circulation, away from direct heat. A table or countertop in a spare room works well.
- Resist the urge to speed up the drying process using heat. Air drying is best and will result in the strongest, most durable wheel.
- Once the clay is dry to the touch but still cool, it’s ready for the kiln. At this point, it will feel firm but not brittle.
Fire the Clay in a Kiln
Now it’s time to turn your clay into ceramics through a process called firing. Place your wheel on a kiln shelf and load it into the kiln. Set the kiln to cone 04, which is approximately 1945°F. Fire the kiln and allow it to cool completely.
- Firing the clay in a kiln chemically transforms it into ceramics, making it rock hard and durable.
- Be very careful loading and unloading the kiln, as the shelves and kiln walls will be extremely hot!
- Allow at least 8 hours for the kiln to cool before unloading your wheel.
Add the Final Touches
Once cooled, your wheel is ready for the final touches. You may want to sand down any rough edges or imperfections. You can also paint or glaze the wheel to your liking. Add a hubcap to the center hole and your wheel is ready to display or use in craft projects!
The drying and firing process requires patience, but will reward you with a wheel that lasts for years to come. Take pride in this step—you’re creating something with your own two hands that can be passed down for generations.
Combine Ceramics and Stone to Make the Wheel
To make the wheel, you need to combine ceramics and stone. Ceramics and stone are two of the four basic elements in Little Alchemy, along with air and water.
To create ceramics, combine:
- Fire and earth
- Fire and clay
Either combination will yield ceramics. Ceramics represent pottery, dishes, bricks, and other fired earthen materials.
Stone is one of the starting four basic elements, so you begin with it automatically. Stone represents rocks, boulders, pebbles, and minerals.
Combine Ceramics and Stone
Now that you have ceramics and stone, combine them to make the wheel:
- Select ceramics on the left side of the screen.
- Select stone on the right side of the screen.
- The new item “wheel” will appear at the bottom. Tap it to add it to your inventory.
The wheel is a pivotal invention that revolutionized transportation and commerce. By combining the hard, durable stone with malleable ceramics, you’ve created this important discovery.
Wheels can now be used to make other critical items like carts, wagons, pottery wheels, mills, and gears. Keep experimenting by combining the wheel with wood, metal, containers, and more. New inventions await! Let your creativity flow as you rediscover and reinvent humanity’s most impactful creations.
With the power of alchemy in your hands, there are endless possibilities to craft and build anew. Keep exploring, keep combining, and most of all, keep discovering. The world is yours to recreate however you see fit!
