Encaustic monotypes are created with an anodized aluminum plate. Encaustic paint is applied onto the hot plate, then hand pressed onto paper, causing the wax image to transfer. A monotype is a unique, one of a kind, painterly piece of artwork. It is the simplest form of printmaking, requiring only pigmented wax, a surface on which to apply the wax, paper, and some form of press.
