Monotype

Monoprinting is a method of printmaking that embodies experimentation, spontaneity and impulsive use of mark making. The characteristic of this method is that no two prints are alike; although images can be similar, multiple, identical editions are not possible.

About this process

The appeal of monotype lies in the unique textures that create a quality of light, very different when compared to painting on paper or any other type of print. The beauty of this process is in its improvisation of mark-making technique and its combination of printmaking, painting and drawing methods.

Monoprinting at Green Door

At Green Door, we advocate monoprinting for anyone who is currently ‘stuck’, feels ineffective or sidelined when it comes to their work. This process is also perfect for those who have never tried printmaking and would like to dive straight into using inks, tools and presses, combined with beautiful cotton-rag papers to create a series of unique and individual prints.

Prints produced using this process are always fascinating and, more often than not, inspiring. They can be both beautiful stand-alone prints, as well as a starting point from which to explore and investigate other printmaking techniques.
