Re: Solvent Free Painting

When you do not use some ingredients you just limit yourself. I always use painting ingredients or tools if them helps me to paint better. I use acrylic, solvents, fillers, alkyds, powdered pigments, oils when I need to use them.

You are so right.
My wish not to use additional ingredients reflects my fears of health issues, not any creative reluctance.

My aim in life is not to use any medium or thinner - except for a bit of oil - for *all* my painting.

I've used no medium in 95% of my paintings and have never scraped any paint. Not sure why one would, but I realize we all have our own methods and techniques. Ne medium is needed if you don't mind the consistency of the paint straight from the tube.

Re: Solvent Free Painting

Would this apply to indirect painting methods?

I agree and I would expect some significant differences in their respective behaviors.
After I reviewed an old thread from the WMO forum about patents and inventions, I ran across a third method, in this post by DBClemmons where he quoted Grumbacher Max methodology, saying that no surfactant is used at all.
They claimed to be able to separate a water mixable faction of normal binding oil and achieve water solubility.
Maybe this could be a reason why they have gotten a less than glowing reputation for their brand of WMO's
