What Is A Monotype Or
A monotype or monoprint is a piece of original art. The art of monotype has enjoyed a
surge of popularity in recent years. In brief, a monotype is a single print created by
transferring to paper an image that has been painted on a plate made of metal, glass or
other material. It is then transferred to traditional artist grade papers by hand rubbing
or by passing through an etching or lithography press. Occasionally a second run through
the press produces a "ghost" image, a lighter version of the original.
Rembrandt, Gauguin and Degas made monoprints.
Mary Dodd uses monoprints as a starting point for collage and mixed media
images. Works may be embossed or debossed using both found materials and specially
prepared metal and cardboard plates. The images may be reworked using a variety of media.
Collage elements may be added, producing unique images not possible by working directly on
What Is Watermedia?
Transparent watercolor, aquarelle, acrylic and gouche are the most familiar examples of
watermedia, a category of painting which includes the use of any water-soluble paint to
produce fine art. Most of the paintings are done on high quality neutral Ph rag or part
rag papers although acrylic, which dries to a waterproof surface and will allow heavy
impasto application , may be painted on canvas or wood panels.
What Are Limited Edition Prints?
Limited edition prints are images reproduced in a limited, specific quantity from an
original painting.. The prints are then numbered in sequence, often the title of the
painting is hand written on the the print and it is signed by the artist. The number
100/200 designates the one hundredth print in an edition of two hundred. The lower the
number of the print, the size of the edition and the artists signature all contribute to
the prints desirability.
