How to load a paint brush

Listed under Blog, brushes, video Posted Aug 10 2011

For general painting walls, doors without a precise cut involved, I just dip the brush in the paint, lift and twist. No dabbing on the sides of the kettle, no mucking about. It works with acrylic or oil paint.

This is the shortest video demo on Youtube!

Obviously for precise cutting, you need a different technique to load your paint brush, ably demonstrated by the master. But for getting the paint on the surface for brushing out, I can’t see any reason for dipping and dabbing.
