About the Monotypes
A monotype is basically an original oil painting made on a glass or acrylic plate. Paper is laid on top of the painting and pressure is put on it by hand or roller which results in the paint being transferred to the paper.
We start by first painting a design with a thin layer of oil paint onto a glass or plastic plate. It can be applied with any sort of tool like a brush or brayer. The paint is very thin and can also be rubbed or scraped off. The paint can be any colour as well.
