Steinþrykk er mynd teiknuð með feitri krít eða bleki á slípaðan kalkstein. Steinninn er síðan vættur með sýru sem ætir hreina fleti og gerir þá vatnsdræga. Teikningin er þvegin af með terpentínu og steinninn bleyttur með vatni sem smýgur inn í hann þar sem hann var ættur en fitan úr blekinu/krítinni hrindir vatninu frá sér. Þegar feitri prentsvertu er valsað yfir steininn sest hún á feitu myndfletina en hrekkur af þeim röku. Myndin er síðan þrykkt á pappír í pressu.

Stone Lithography is an image drawn with oil based crayon or ink on a polished limestone. The stone is then doused with acid which etched the clean areas, making them more water absorbent. The drawing is washed of with terpentine and damped with water which is absorbed by clean stone but repelled from the oil based drawing materials. When ink is rolled on the stone it sticks to the greasy image. The image is then printed onto paper on a printing press.
