The meaning behind the words are, mono for being one of a kind, type is used to replace print since there wasn’t a print to starts with, for instance a etching. Just a blank plate which is used to paint on!
The items above are used in making a mono-type. Anything goes! Tina likes to work in an oil base etching ink on Dutch Etch paper, it is a heavy weight acid free printmaking paper. The mono-types are very painterly and have an impressionistic feel.
