What I love about monotype printmaking is that it is a more experimental and explorative process than carving a block. There is always an element of surprise to printmaking but with monotype prints it is even more so. It is definitely a lost and found process, sometimes a bit of hit or miss.
Monotype prints can be done in a painterly way, applying ink to Plexiglas or metal, and sometimes removing ink by various methods.
Sometimes stencils and other objects and textured materials are used as well.
In some cases I combine woodblock prints with monotype backgrounds, but in all cases each monotype print is unique and only one exists rather than an edition.
