Printing a monotype can be done in several ways. My process involves planning a composition and cutting out shapes to carry out the idea. A plate is inked. The pieces are inked and placed on the plate. Then it is run through the press and printed on a damp piece of acid free rag type paper. After the first print is pulled, I can pick up the pieces from the plate to find a “ghost “image. I might then turn the pieces over and replace them in another area. I can re-ink them, or even use other new pieces to make another print. Each print is different, but related to the last. This can go on for several prints with each pull producing a different monotype. In this series, I have combined three related prints to become one large composition.
