Monotype Printmakingby Barbara Kuzara
What is a Monotype?
Often the terms monotype and monoprint are used interchangeably, however, there is a big difference between a monotype and monoprint. A monotype is essentially a ONE of a kind original. It is one printed image which does not have any form of matrix. A monoprint has some form of basic matrix. The printmaking process of creating a monotype and monoprint is basically the same, but when doing monotypes, the artist works on a clean unetched plate.
