Monotype prints are essentially one of a kind prints. My previous shell prints are essentially monoprints. Although they are basically one of a kind, the pattern is repeated. The print I pulled above is one that came about because I used one of the stamps on the gel-plate over multiple layers of leftover paint. When I pulled up the paint, this is what I got. There is no way I could repeat this. I was initially using part of the gel-plate to roll out the paint for the other prints I made. This was an accidental print and I really like it – especially the little white bit in the lower left hand corner.
Sometimes art will throw you a happy accident! Happy painting people!
