The mono-print process ...These miniature orchids have been drawn directly from the flowering plants and are 'true to life' in scale using the hand drawing printing technique of mono-printing. Printing ink is applied to a glass surface with a roller, a sheet of paper is placed onto the ink and the image is drawn directly onto the paper. Once completed, the paper is peeled from the ink to reveal the mono-print drawing. Unlike most printmaking, the image can only be made once. The technique attempts to capture the elusive and intriguing qualities of these little exotic orchids.
