Introduction to Monotypes was a great workshop with some fantastic prints created. I started with a demonstration on how to roll etching ink evenly on a perspex plate for a variety of monotype techniques and processes including direct drawing, reductive, additive, and multi-coloured layering. Monotypes are most commonly created using and combing drawing and painting. Information can be developed in both additive and reductive approaches, much the same way as marks can be drawn or erased in a drawing.We experimented with printing by hand and using an etching press.
