YouTube is loaded with them (http://www.youtube.com). One thing to watch out for... sometimes the gents use more of the brush than what is recommended. When demonstrated by hand lathering especially, it's easy to use too much pressure and mash the brush, But Sharpspine does a great job of resisting that when hand lathering. FWIW, only the outer 1/3 of the fibers should be used. For many of us it's not the easiest thing to do. Just be aware of it.

If you go to YouTube and do a search for "Sharpspine lather" you'll get quite a few hits. If you do a search for "make shave lather" or some such you should get a lot more hits. Some are better at brush usage and some aren't but they all know how to make lather. No matter what you find though... just the outer 1/3 of the length of the fibers should be involved in lather making. That's very easy to write but a bit more difficult to actually do. Especially easy for me to write since I've never made any videos. BTW, some brushes aid in resisting that more than others.

But these will get you started. (below)

Mantic59,Nick shaves,Geofatboy all have pretty good tutorials on lathering. Lynn Abrams also has a pretty good face lathering video as well. I suggest searching more for your brand of shave soap or type of brush. Remember different people like their lather different ways,some like it more wet and thin,others thicker and dryer. No one can say what type you will like better or what is best for you. I suggest like I said searching for your type of brush and or type of soap or cream and watch a few videos.

Remember different soaps require different amounts of water,I would search for your brand of soap or creme and go from there. Take videos for what they are someone else's methods and opinions only you know whether you know what works best for you. Some slick a dryer lather ,others more wet. Only experience can let yiu know what works best for you.
