Monotypie

What is Monotyping?

Monotyping is a form of printmaking that is carried out by drawing on a surface that is smooth, flat and non-absorbant. A monotype is a unique work of art that gets printed on surfaces such as plastic, glass or zinc. Traditionally it was also carried out on copper etching plates. The image gets transferred to paper by pressing the original surface to the paper with a printing press. Monotypes are also created by inking all of the surface, and then use brushes to remove some of the ink and create a subtractive image. A monotype is essentially a unique print, and even though reprints are sometimes possible, they are bound to differ greatly from the first one and of an inferior quality. In fact they are commonly referred to as ghost prints. It is important to clarify that monotypes are not monoprints, despite the fact that these two terms are often used interchangeably. In both cases there is a transfer of ink from a plate to a surface which will then hold the artwork. But, in the case of a monotype, the plate will be a featureless one, that is there are not engravings or etches. As a result there can only be one unique print, that is, the monotype. On the other hand, plates with permanent features are used for monoprints.
