Monotype technique which is one of the techniques of Mine Art Gallery's summer workshop only gives the artist to practice with a single printing technique. However, it allows the artist color his or her print the way he or she likes. Monotype can be characterized as an experimental printing technique.
Linoleum print, on the other hand, is conspired among one of the highest printing techniques in painting. Due to the softness of the material, the artist can mold the print any way he or she likes. Moreover, this technique allows the artist to draw on the print or carve it. One can easily do more than one multi-color print with single pattern and copy his or her works multiple times.
Wood print technique is also one of the most elaborate printing techniques. It is applied through carvings on wooden plates. This technique allows artist to work on an each space and shape the pattern easier than other techniques. It is possible to make more than one multi-color paintings with this technique and you can make copies of your pattern easily.
Lastly, metal gravure technique is more complicated than other techniques. After drawing and carving on metal plates, the artist has to put his or her work in acid and after resting the artwork in acid for a while, he or she can continue with the printing process.
