Known as the most painterly method of printmaking, monotypes are a way to easily combine marks of drawing and painting to create a one of a kind print. Through this DEMO, you will explore the subtractive method of monoprinting – working from dark to light. Using multiple tools and mediums - such as paintbrushes, rags, and palette knives - you will have the opportunity to create a unique monotype of your own!
