The miniature models of the new reconstructions were created.
The acrylic polychrome was mechanically removed, then the form was corrected.
Archival photographs from the collections of the Herder Institute in Marburg were used during the work.
Efforts were made to give the figures a character similar to the preserved elements of the clock.
During working on the polychrome, paints prepared from dry pigments and egg yolk were used. Finally, the surface was polished with a fabric.
The work was done in order to give the figures some finesse, while maintaining the raw style of the Gdańsk clock.
In order to reduce the weight of the sculptures, the figures were hollowed out after sculpting. Excess wood was removed by cutting the carvings along the strip.
