Subject: Monotypes

Looking for info on monotypes. By monotype I mean a print  where an
image has been drawn in oil paint or oil based printing ink onto a
glass or metal plate and while still wet pressed onto paper.

Assuming that an archival paper has been used, that solvents like
mineral spirits may be used, and that oil based printing ink means
etching or relief ink:

Anyone familiar with conservation issues/long term condition of
monotypes where oil paint has been used instead ink? Any info
comparing ink monotypes to oil paint monotypes?

Or, ignoring the monotype process, any info comparing the effect of
oil paint and oil based printing ink on paper?
