This five sacred ingredients were added into the substance with incantations of holy-scripture, writing of sutras and holy symbols (yantra) with chalk on a board, erased and rewrite them several hundred time over. The dust gathered thus signifies the sacred power of the ritual. This first collected powder is Pattamung.

Pattamung powder is then mixed with water and mold into pencil shape, sun-dried and then use in writing of another chapter of sutras. The process of writing down and erasing is repeated as many times as stipulated in the holy sutras. The dust gathered from the second ritual is ittijae. The same process is performed until all of the five ingredients have been collected. The ingredients are then mixed together and added to the bulk substance which consists of ground shells as main part, others includes cooked rice, talc, crushed banana with Tang Eiw oil as cementing agent. When all the ingredients are well mixed, the derived substance is taken in small parts and pressed into a mold made by a man from Ban Changlor.
