A monotype is a print created by transferring to paper an image that has been painted on a plate made of metal, glass, plexiglas, etc. The process of transfer is done by either hand rubbing or using an etching or lithography press. Createx colors are specifically designed for making monotypes.
Unlike oil-based inks, Createx water-based colors can dry before printing. Dampened paper will rewet the color and transfer the image. This property of Createx colors offers the ability to ink several plates at once, then transfer the image later.
Colors are packaged in 8 oz (.24 L) bottles. Createx Monotype Base comes in a 32 oz (.95 L) bottle. All colors are water-based, non-toxic, and permanent.
This set of 12 contains 4 oz bottles of White, Black, Primary Red, Primary Blue, Orange, Phthalo Blue, Cobalt Blue, Violet, Phthalo Green, Raw Sienna, Burnt Umber, and Monotype Base.
This set of 8 colors contains 4 oz bottles of: White, Black, Primary Red, Primary Yellow, Phthalo Blue, Violet, Phthalo Green, and Monotype Base.

Monotype printing works so much better with this product
Comments about Createx Monotype Colors:
We used this product creating mono-prints with middle school children from Baltimore City. It worked so much better than block printing ink, tempera or acrylics and the students got great results.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great for monotype printmaking.
Createx monotype color set
I was able to spread paint on plate evenly. Colors were not as brilliant as I expected . . When using a brush on the plate it work easily.

from Honesdale, Pa.
I tried varying the dampness of the paper but it still stuck to the inked plate. Then I tried dry paper and spraying the ink. That worked.

Great for gelatin printing
By judy 10 clay
The consistency of the ink is perfect for making monotypes using the block of gelatin as the plate. I'm pleased with the subtle variations I can get in color and texture.
