Default Best brush dipping method

I prefer the dip- tap -tap method.
Being careful not to fling paint around the area, thereby speckling adjacent surfaces.

What technique are you pros using these days?

I dip while taking pre caution not to wet the side of the brush that cuts against the ceiling, single tap on the inside (not the rim, I hate that) to remove excess paint. Couple million more dips and I will retire and/or croak.

I just dunk it up to the ferrule and twirl it a little then mop it on. Dunk dunk slop. Gets more paint to the surface faster!

I throw the whole brush in and fish it out.

I like to pour the paint out and onto my brush.

I tend to dip my brush down towards the paint.

I like the tap-tap method. Most non-professionals scrape way to much paint off of their brush. Of course when you use cheap paint it will drip like crazy if you don't scrape most of it off.
