Monotypes are a way of making original art. My images are painted on an acrylic plate using a variety of custom mixed inks. Then archival, acid-free paper is soaked in water and placed on top of the plate and pulled through a printing press.
THE CHALLENGE IS TO THINK IN REVERSE!
Monoprints are made from a plate that is incised. Then ink is press into the grooves making the image. The excess is buffed off. Next ink is brushed or rolled on to create one (mono) print. Monotypes are painted on a blank acrylic plate. Both use wet paper placed on top of the plate and pulled through the printing press.
