Monoprint

Use Akua Liquid Pigment & Akua Intaglio inks

 

A Monoprint is an image composed of a monotype and some other form of printmaking resulting in a variable edition. Each print from the variable edition is a one of a kind print where part of the image is repeatable on a fixed matrix and part is not. The following image Family of Three was made by printing a drypoint plate on top of a subtractive monotype print. The final image was printed many times, each time in a different way.

Images below were taken from the Safer Printmaking DVD.
