Monotypes are the prints that are most like paintings.  The artist “paints” an image on a printer’s plate directly using a brush and paint or printers ink.  The plate is then pulled through the press with printing paper over the plate.  The press pushes the image on to the paper.  The image is used up in one process - hence the name “monotype”.  Sometimes it is possible to run the plate through a second time, but the print is usually ghostlike in appearance.
