Monoprinting is a technique using inks, acrylics and watercolors to draw on a gel pad. Sometimes objects are placed on the inked pad for special design effects. The artwork is then transferred onto paper or cloth. Several prints can be made from the original artwork by adding or subtracting a medium and/or object(s) on the “ghost copy” of the original drawing.

However, when the “ghost copy” of the original is not used to produce additional works, then the piece is called a monotype; meaning it is a one-of-a-kind work of art. These techniques date back to the 17th Century.
