It is a simple way to repurpose an old clock. Or you can make one from scratch and order your own clock mechanism.
So, read on to find out how to make your own Pantone Clock.

Step 1: Materials and Tools Needed.
- A clock mechanism
- An old Pantone guide - (I got the pantone top 100 colours book of ebay for about £7)
- Medium weight card
- Craft knife
- A 5 pence piece or similair
- A washer the same diameter on the inside as your clock thread spindle (normally on the mechanism itself)
Step 2: Cut holes in the samples.
Using the washer make out the center towards the bottom of each leaf. Mark with a pencil.
You can then use the washer to run your scalpel around the inside of, in order to cut out a hole the right size to fit over the spindle of the clock.
Using the same technique cut out a circle in your card stock to use for the back.
Step 3: Glue opposite pairs.
Roughly pick out two colours that do not match. I then aligned the holes in the middle and glued them into pairs.
You should end up with six sections.
You can use the edge of a ruler to make sure they are straight.
