It is applied with a roller paint on a glass plate for monotype
Glass plate is colored with roller and prepared for monotype.

The graphic technique monotype is often arrogantly dismissed as »kids’ stuff« because its possibilities are misunderstood. It is still practiced by many recognized artists. Nowadays it is extremely rare to see such prints in contemporary exhibitions, but in the Berggruen Collection in the Stüler Building hang some wonderful prints by Paul Klee and among many others H. Matisse, Ch. Rohlfs and H. Janssen worked with this technique.

Through monotypes (often mistakenly called rubbing) only originals / uniques can be produced. It is created by a single impression from a plate on which a thin layer of ink has previously been applied to. This simple approach is very expressive though and makes experimenting worthwhile. Further color layers can be applied on top. Participants will use experimental creativity to learn the »secrets« of black and white, multi-color, stencil and other monotypes. Different effects can be made by playing with tools, color mixes, pressure applied and of course by using different papers. A lot of prints are created in a very short time, for which only a few utensils are needed.
