What is the term for reproducing a texture by laying paper over it and rubbing it with a pencil or crayon?

Answer:

FROTTAGE

Frottage is a method of reproducing a texture or relief design by laying paper over it and rubbing it with some sort of drawing utensil. The technique was developed by Max Ernst in 1925. Inspired by an ancient wooden floor, the patterns and graining of which suggested strange images to him, he captured these by laying sheets of paper on the floor and then rubbing over them with a soft pencil.
