What is a monotype?

What is a monotype?

Refers to a printmaking that is made by painting or drawing on a nonabsorbent, smooth surface. Historically, the surface was an etching plate of copper, but these days, the surface can vary from acrylic to zinc or glass. Image is transferred to a sheet of paper where the two are pressed by use of printing press. The process creates a unique print called monotype. The initial pressing removes most of the ink.
