Lithography
A printmaking method developed in the late eighteenth century in which the image to be printed is drawn on a limestone, zine, or aluminum surface with a special greasy crayon.  The drawings are then washed with water. When ink is applied, it sticks to the greasy drawing but runs off the wet surface, allowing a print to be made of the drawing
