Mono means one. A monoprint is a unique print pulled from a plate that already has an image incised into it. Unlike an edition (i.e. 57/250), in which an artist produces multiples of the same images, each Monoprint is always one of a kind (1/1).
A fine art printing technique using a flat unaltered printing surface such as Plexiglas. The plate is wiped clean after each pull.
The printing plate surface is textured and embosses the paper during the printing process. A collagraph is a monoprint because the texture is a consistent image.
Means "glued paper." A method of adhering thin, exotic or colored papers, to the larger printing paper at the same time that the inked image is printed. If the paper was added later it would be called collage.
A monoprint is considered mixed media when a significant addition of other media is used, such as oil pastel or watercolor, to enhance the image after the printing process.
Two or three separate pieces combined to create one complete image. The term comes from Latin which means to fold into two or fold into three, as in a hinged tablet. The words are pronounced with a "tick" sound.
