Thats what I did, used that exact same site back when I used topsoil as my substrate. I found my pottery clay at Michaels Design. I picked up any natural clay that was red. Mine was Mexican pottery clay. Some clays are dyed red, so dont get those.

u dont really need all the stuff that list on the site.

all u need is top soil, and gravel.

u can replace the pottery clay for penny.
use the penny for iron. if not u can always use soil clay.

penny as in 1 cent coin ... loL
some ppl use hardware nails the rushy one for iron.

1 layer of soils, top it up with nails, and then top it up with 1 more layer of soils, than top layer will be ur gravel.

u should have 3 to 4 inch of soils and 1 inch of gravel, depends on how much u wanna use.
