Drypoint 

 

A printmaking technique of the intaglio family, in which an image is incised into a plate (or "matrix") with a hard-pointed "needle" of sharp metal or diamond point. In principle, the method is practically identical to engraving. ... The term is also used for inkless scratched inscriptions, such as glosses in manuscripts.
