Rest your pick on the string, just like you're going to pluck it. Then, lightly put the tip of your middle finger (not the VERY tip, but the fleshier part) about 1 inch in front of (i.e. towards the neck) the tip of the pick. Pluck the string down, and brush the string in an "upward" direction with your middle finger, at the exact same time. Don't leave your finger there; just brush it with your finger, and remove it as soon as you pluck the string with the pick. I just find that's the easiest way to do it. And after playing pinch harmonics for about 4 years or so, I still find that method the eaiest, and it gives you the best effect.

Any more questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Again, if you wanna use the thumb method, go ahead. But you've gotta be really, really patient.
Ladies and gents we're still alive
By the skin of our teeth, now it's killing time
Fasten up your head belts,
Time to ride the stars
It's time to be immortal, 'cuz heroes never die.
