With the monotype print there can only be one finished product. As you can see once the surface of the plate is painted the paper can be pressed onto the plate then pealed away giving you one print. This print is more of an abstract print with symmetry. If you didn't know it was a print it seems to look like it was actually painted on the paper. But the draw backs to this style of print is that each print will be different from the next no mater how hard you may try to recreate it, and pealing the paper from the plate may make the paint smear and change the finish product.
