you can order clay for pottery from places like dickblick http://www.dickblick.com/categories/firingclays/
I don't know if that sort will work though? i imagine ordering it in powder form will be much cheaper but if you do that wear a dust mask when you mix it with water. you don't want to breath that in. perhaps you could find a creek or river near you with clay and bring some to your bees from there?
