Monotyping is a type of printmaking made by drawing or painting on a smooth, non-absorbent surface and then pressing the surface to paper, usually through a printing press. Unlike other types of printmaking, a monotype is creates a unique, one-of-a-kind handpulled print, not an edition. I roll the ink out on a piece of plexiglass, wipe away the ink with a rag or q-tip, and run it through the press. After the image is printed, nothing remains on the plexiglass plate.
