Three periods of Phrasomdej
Actually, Somdej Phra Bhuthacharn Toe Bhrammarangsri approximately made phrasomdej amulets around 2390-2400 B.E. (1847-1857) as the first period. The printed molds were sculptured by grass root people around the temple, so they didn’t state in gracefully prints. In the aspect of the content, during that time, the honorable Somdej Toe tried to investigate the best formula of lime mixers in each batch/ mortar. Thus we found various styles of phrasomdej that time by helping of people around the temple. However, most of the amulets in first period decay or disappear because instability of content mixers.
The middle age period of Phrasomdej is during 2400-2409 B.E., and most of the printed molds were sculptured by Luang Witchit Naruemon and Luang Sithiyotharak that have showed each one of identity styles.
The final period is during 2409-2414 B.E. Printed molds in this period focused on the art of Luang Witcharn Chieranai which we called Pim Niyom and were used for the three temples (Wat Rakang, Wat Bang Khun Bhrom, and Wat Khate Chai Yo).
Pearls’ Skin of Phrasomdej
The emollient rising skin and soften like pearl of Phrasomdej is as its identification. Phrasomdej is composed of quick lime and clam slaked lime with various holy substances such as gold and silver dust, jewelry dust, holy buddhakhun powder, brick- color dirt of Phra Kumpaeng-Tung Saithee, holy herbs etc.
Clam quick and slaked lime causes calcium oxide and calcium carbonate solutions which can appear in various color of crust after the moist has gone depending on color tone of initial clam lime. Phrasomdej always develops the crust of calcium carbonate whole amulet which may have much or little depending on the amount of each batch ingredients especially lime and Tung-Eiw oil.
If the ingredient is much of Tung-Eiw oil, the surface of Phrasomdej won’t develop much of calcium carbonate crust (quite a little skin change but must have the change and trace of ages). However, if the ingredient is much of powder lime, the surface of Phrasomdej will develop much and several of calcium carbonate crust and stain.
