I have had a few people interested in seeing a lather video demonstrating how I make the rich, well-hydrated lather demonstrated in my photos posted in the Lather Shots thread.  I have no video-making or video-editing skill which will be readily apparent to all of you, but I think the video attempts to demonstrate how I make this kind of lather.  ***Disclaimer: Obviously there are at least a million and one ways to make lather, our preferred lather characteristics vary widely, and I do not presume that everyone will enjoy making lather this way or enjoy the type of lather made with this method.  That being said I hope those interested can get what they wanted from the video.***
Once again I apologize for my lack of skill in video making!
Hope you enjoy!

You will have to change your settings in your creator studio on youtube. PM if you need any help. I think you want to put it as unlisted.

Fixed.  My first time publishing something on YouTube. Sorry about that! 
Also noticed that the video ends a bit before I thought it would.  I might try to upload again tomorrow. But for now, I'm heading to bed.

I fully expect to see some shiny lather shots in the near future. I am going to give this method a try with Tabac this morning. Thank you for the effort and for sharing your technique Nathan.

Well done Nathan and as others said- thanks much for taking the time and making the effort!

I typically don't build my lather on the puck, only load, but am going to give it a shot tomorrow.

The Nathan Method has been born Smile

Wonderful video Nathan, thanks for the post. I used to use the marco method but overtime it has changed. The method you use is what I do as well. I load it like I like I hate but add H2O in between. Works wonderfully and always get that yogurty lather.

Enjoyed the video. thanks Nathan! My approach is quite similar, but I do bloom my soaps and probably add water is slightly higher quantities.

This is the way I always remember my dad building lather with his Old Spice mug and soap.  He built it all right on the puck.  As I tried to articulate in the video, building lather on the puck allows you to really dial your lather in exactly the way you like it.  It allows you avoid too much/too little water or too little soap.

Depending on which soap I am using I will sometimes bloom it too.  This method works very well both ways.
