Bulletist or bulletism is an artistic process that involves shooting ink at a blank piece of paper[1] The result is a type of ink blot. The artist can then develop images based on what is seen. Salvador Dalí claimed to have invented this technique.[citation needed] Leonardo da Vinci, however, suggested that "just as one can hear any desired syllable in the sound of a bell, so one can see any desired figure in the shape formed by throwing a sponge with ink against the wall."[2]
