We had to do monotype prints, monoprints, and drypoint etchings for the assignment. Monotype printing is a little like painting - you paint/ make marks on your plate (a sheet of plastic of some type) with oil-based ink and then run it through the press. You can usually only get one print from this, hence monotype.

Drypoint prints are basically like etchings, but the plate doesn't last as long, and they're a little less complex than etchings in process.
And monoprints are essentially fixed plates inked in a non-traditional way (in this case, using my drypoint plate and tape).
