The process that I most often use to make prints is either monotype by itself or monotype in combination with relief printing, creating a monoprint. The difference between a monotype and a monoprint is that a monoprint has a fixed matrix element to the print. To print either process I use a Vandercook or Dufa flatbed press. Using either press I have prefect registration between the plate(s) and the paper, which allows me to print multiple layers with accurate registration. The ability to run each copy through the press multiple times enables me to build up dense, subtle colors and/or dry media, which gives the appearance of either hand drawing or the look of a lithograph without going through the process of making individual plates for each run.
