Spanish term or phrase: monocopias
In the field of art, would "monocopias" be "monoprints"?

I am about as artistically challenged as I am musically challenged, so art terminology is pretty much a mystery to me. I did find a website that explained monoprints and the description seemed to fit the context of what I am translating. Before using it, though, I want to run it by someone who may know for sure.

Thanks for the help.

Explanation:
What about this:

... What is a monoprint? A monoprint is a unique print pulled from a plate which has been hand painted by the artist. Unlike etching or lithography, this is not a mechanical process and works can't be editioned. Due to their painterly nature, monoprints and monotypes are considered unique works of art often related as being unique paintings.

Técnica Monocopias simples

Materiales : Tacos:azulejo, rodillo de goma espuma,Témperas de colores,plasticola,pincel

Procedimiento: Preparamos témpera de distintos colores sobre una superficie lisa

Agregamos plasticola a cada color, mezclamos

Entintamos el rodillo de goma espuma

Aplicamos sobre la superficie del azulejo

Tomamos la hoja blanca de fino grosor y dejamos caer sobre el taco (azulejo)

Marcamos bien los bordes,y frotamos con movimientos circulares

Retiramos y obtenemos la primera monocopia

Sin volver a entintar el taco "azulejo" sacamos otra estampa

Observamos que la témpera sobre el taco se ha secado

Humedecemos una hoja blanca de fino grosor y reiteramos el procedimiento de estampación

La hoja húmeda ablanda el material y lo lleva a la hoja.Obtendremos colores acuarelados

Variantes

Podes reemplazar la hoja blanca de fino grosor por hojas impresas de revistas y diarios
Podés dibujar con las témperas sobre el taco "azulejo" sin completar la superficie
Variantes: Monocopias simples y con elementos
