Jim Johnston offers five day workshops entitled "Introduction to the Monotype". A monotype is a hybrid art form, combining aspects of both painting and printmaking. The print is made by applying inks onto a smooth plate of plexiglass, using a variety of techniques for layering several colors. The finished plate is left to dry overnight. The plate is then covered with a piece of damp paper and rolled through a printing press. The combination of moisture from the paper and pressure from the press causes the image to transfer to the paper. Only one print–called a monotype–is made from each plate. The plate is then washed off to be used again. The process offers a range of techniques and effects not possible in direct painting on paper. Only water-based inks are used in this process–no toxic solvents or turpentine are needed. Write for details.
