Monotype is part painting and part print. The image is painted or drawn directly onto a plate. Paper is then placed on the plate and run through a press.

A silk or nylon screen is stretched on a frame. Parts of the silk are blocked out. The ink is forced through the silk and deposited on the paper, which is placed below. A separate screen must be used for each color. The resulting print has a smoth surface with a thin layer of ink and no embossing. A deconstrutive screen print is when matieral used to block out the screen desenigrates with every printing. It therefore comes through on the paper as color and texture.
