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.)
Funny how this whole discussion brings back memories of my days in the Academy of Arts - and a color (really bright pink) and (a bit vaguer) the smell of it. I never did much with screen-printing (no more than get a basic concept of the technique) but found it was rather fun anyway.
