I have previously "cooked" the soil in the oven (SWMBO must not be present when doing this!) and had not thought about using the microwave!

One thing that was pointed out to me many years ago was the best place to get soil from for this process. Rather than use soil from out of your garden, use the soil from under the house. You can just generally brush it up rather than digging a clod and breaking it up etc

Another useful place is the desert road in the middle of the north island of NZ. It is a volcanic region and although it is rock rather than dirt the amount of colours is quite huge.

I dont think many countries will let me post any though!
