The Monotype Process

Another variant on the monotype process involves the introduction of stencils, or cut forms, to create an image.

"Stenciled shapes are cut, in this instance from mylar, and are laid on top of an inked plate and printed through the press."

When the cut shapes are removed from the plate, a second pull can be taken, transferring the ink that was blocked by the cut shapes in the first pull.

"The mylar shapes are removed off the plate which allows a darker area of blue against a lighter area of blue."
