WHAT DOES CHINAGRAPH MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Chinagraph

Grease pencil

The grease pencil, a wax writing tool also known as a wax pencil, china marker or, especially in the United Kingdom, a chinagraph pencil, or nerd pen in Germany, is a writing implement made of hardened colored wax and is useful for marking on hard, glossy non-porous surfaces such as porcelain, glass, polished stone, plastic, ceramics and other glazed, lacquered or polished surfaces, as well as the glossy paper that is used for photographic printing, x-rays, and for marking edits on analog audio tape and film. It is also used to label theatrical lighting gels. It is often used as a construction or handyman's marking tool as it rarely scratches the surface it is used on. It may be used to mark a wet surface. They are also favored among some traditional artists. Due to its ability to write on glass, it is often used in chemistry labs to mark glassware. This pencil is available in several forms. The outer casing may be made of wood and sharpened with a knife or pencil sharpener. Other types are covered in paper and sharpened by pulling a string to peel off the paper, needing no additional tools to remain functional.
