Transcript:Quick Tip: Load a Paint Brush With Paint

Hi, I'm Marco Cutrone from Marco Cutrone Fine Arts. I'm a realist painter. I'm here for About.com to give you a few quick tips on how to load a paint brush with paint.

How to Load a Paint Brush

The first thing to remember is that there really is no one way to load paint on a paint brush. It all depends on the type of brush you are using as well as the type of mark you want to make.

However, if you are new to painting, one great way to get started is to pour out the correct amount of paint, dip your brush into the center of the paint, and pull the brush toward you. This will load the paint onto one side of the brush. You can repeat and pull the brush in the other direction to load the opposite side of the brush with paint. You want to make sure that you don't load too much paint onto the brush.
