Frequently Asked Questions

What are Monotypes?
Monotypes are one of a kind prints. Each piece has a distinctive look of it's own. Monotypes are initially painted on a piece of Plexiglas (plate) and then transferred to paper.

An artist may be able to pull more than on print from a plate, but each print is uniquely different due to the changes that occur during the printing process.

What media do you use to make monotypes?
Monotypes can be made using watercolor, water based ink, or water based oil. Each media presents a unique look that can only be obtained through the printmaking process.
