Custom clock. Your personalization.
Each clock has a story, each is unique in that it most often arises from a simple piece of material which through various processes and with the skillful hands (and many tools) of the artist, turns into a beautiful wall clock. There is the concept of one’s struggle and effort to create something, to improve it. We want to be able to craft any type of clock and we’re especially fond of new projects. The story continues after the wall clock is created and you will become the main character, and as a king you can choose to make a unique and special gift or to enjoy it yourself. I propose that we write a story together to achieve a personalized wall clock.
It all starts with something that catches our attention or our personal idea and we want to put that idea into action, to find a place on the wall, at home and in our hearts to make the moments of our day prettier every time we look at the clock. Yes, I need an idea, a desire that I kept in my mind, wrote or drew on a piece of paper.
Step 1: Draw what you like.
Most wall clocks are round or square, but you have the option to customize your wall clock and give it any shape you want.
We have here a drawing application that allows you to create smooth and dynamic lines. Line thickness and color changes depending on how fast you move the mouse, resulting in subtle variations that give the design a realistic look. The overall effect is somewhat like drawing with thick markers or paint. You can save as a jpg or png image when you are finished drawing.

Step 2: Size matters.
Take a good look at that empty space on the wall, measure it with your eyes, then take a ruler or any other measuring tool to that abyss. You can also use a vinyl record which is 30 cm (12 inches) in diameter. You should know that your wall clock can reach up to 1 meter in diameter or even more, but maybe you should ask an eye doctor’s opinion first.
Step 3: How many colors can the human eye perceive.
Color is how our eyes and brain interpret light. Our eyes can only see radiation with a wavelength from 380 nanometers to 740 nanometers. This is called the visible spectrum of light. Isaac Newton enumerated pure colors that we see in the light spectrum as red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.
In 1790, scientist Thomas Young said that the human eye sees only three colors – red, blue, yellow and every other color is just a combination of these primary colors. In 1878, Ewald Hering’s theory postulated four unique shades of red, green, yellow and blue that, when mixed with white or black, represent all possible colors that humans can process. Knowledge useful for painters and printers, but we still do not know how many colors are visible to us.
The truth is that nobody knows exactly how many colors the human eye can see. Scientists estimate millions. Scientific experiments have shown that people can distinguish between subtle color differences, and estimates of the number of colors that we see are somewhere around 10 million.
Now that we have studied color theory you can choose the colors for your wall clock from the millions that your eyes can see.

Step 4: Hands, hands, hands.
We’re almost done! For the clock to run it must have hands, which can be made of metal and can have any shape, size or color.
