I would say that Gocco is the grandchild.

I always used to buy special fabrics for use in “silk” screens (they haven’t actually been silk for decades).

The tusche/resist method you describe is still in use for non-photographic screen-printing. I used to play with sponges laden with resist or glue to create background tones, for example. (Some sort of photo-resist and sensitizing lights are needed for halftone screens.)

Whether it is easy or not kind of depends on how many colors you want to lay down, what sort of registration system you have, and other details. And it does tend to be messy.

The beauty of this little toy is the lack of mess. IMHO, anyway.
