Here is a step by step, reduction monotype with chine collé. I usually use a copper plate so that I can etch it later, or the other side might be etched already. In prepping for Barbados, I made lots of monotype plates out of matt board and acetate. The acetate is adhered with double-sided tape around the four sides. These were great, held up well to all the printing we did, were light (for travel) and inexpensive to make. I have used vapour barrier plastic when I could not find any acetate and it worked well, though it did stretch a bit and needed trimming after a few prints.You can use this type of plate for hand printing as well. The image might not be as crisp as with a press, but you can get some good information with a light weight paper.
This last image is a reduction monotype in progress on the plate. Thought I would include this photo as it is more graphic with the black ink and maybe a bit easier to see.
