By employing different methods to ink a plate (sometimes with rollers, sometimes with rags), by adding pastel or turpentine to his inks, manipulating the grounds (sandpaper and salt lift), choosing different kinds of paper and sometimes soaking the sheets in tea before printing on them, Buhot took the idea of original multiples to the extreme. Although using the same plate, he achieved such a wide variety of effects that each impression could be called unique. For this reason, artists began numbering and signing each sheet individually, usually in pencil, rather than signing their work in the plate, which signaled uniformity.
