Ken - and high school printmaking teachers,

This idea from Patty Knott may interest you.

Patty uses road maps Chine Colle with monotypes.
I adder her description to the Monotype lesson plan:

    I did this in 1976 with a small group of students in a summer school class. I used paper towels rolled up to follow the strreet lines and built up shapes with matt board. Then I laminated it with toilet paper and thinned white glue sollution. They were painted with acrylic and antiqued with oil paint. This started many relief projects in the future.
