Why use a paintbrush? Just rip off a male flower and make that your 'paintbrush'. Rub that against a female flower (They have a small swollen primitive fruit behind them). Do this in the morning when the pollen is fresh.

I have found that nearly all the squash family produce male flowers long before females, then sometimes females with no males!

So I collect some of the male pollen and freeze it for later use - it works well. When I have both at the same time, I do as Tommoz does, and use the male stigma to rub on the female.
