"As many as twenty separate pressings were attempted to achieve a graduated effect... unprecedented experiments with the use of metallics below colored pigments and above dry pigments often created stunning effects..." Miles.

The Chinese puppeteer provided Jacoulet with the first opportunity to try several innovations. The tunics of the puppets and the puppeteer's hat show a use of overprinting. As many as twenty separate pressings were used to achieve a graduated effect, including experiments with metallics over the dry pigments.
