    I really love some good lather porn shots - so why not have them here at P&C as well :D

    Maybe @Mark1966 wants to re-post his recent excellent efforts as well, maybe the powers to be want to make it a sticky - in any case please show us some great lather shots!

    And if you are unhappy with your lather or want some input - well show us those as well!

    As a celebration of @bald as being well and back home again my first 2 are with his soaps. The first one with my Rudy Vey Shavemac and is his Tallow and Lanolin creation, the second one with my Chubby 2 and his (high) Tallow Lemon Myrtle - hope you enjoy:

    Woolfat Wednesday inspired by Stillsy and Draco. Palm lather which I don't normally do. Not quite as hydrated as I like, but tons of lather and did the job fantastically.

    From this morning - no need to re-post shots from previous shaves!

    This is my most marginal brush and I did not put a lot of effort into this lather - no time this morning to muck around. Shots below are after my usual 2 1/2 pass routine -

    This is a fantastic thread. Especially for young grasshoppers like me to learn what great lather looks like. It's still hit and miss for me I need to learn more.

    Yeah bubbles too big? Try banging the base of the jug firmly on the bench top a few times. That should pop the big ones! Doesn't work with shaving lather tho.

    One submission from myself.
    I forgot to take a picture of the lather before, so I whipped out the brush and did another go. Figured I need the practice to learn about the new SV I have.

    What do you guys think? I added a lot more water this time. Loaded less soap too, easier to get the right balance. I'll use these pointers for tomorrow's shave. If it is smooth shave, means I got the ratio right.

    @silver I've got the same color lather bowl as you when I got from Men's Biz about 6 months ago, any way great lather shot you've got their ;) and it's look perfect too me.

    Yea was a bit reluctant to buy it, it was a little expensive. Went around hunting for a similar bowl that has grooves at the bottom, couldn't find a good one. And even if I did, it's very thin. This is one thick ceramic bowl. Great bowl, although it's on the pricey side.

    Thanks for your kind words, I tried applying it to my hand, now I get what they mean by 'when a lather is well hydrated and shave ready, you can evenly spread an even coat of lather than covers your skin, and you shouldn't be able to see your skin colour.'

    I guess I'll find out tomorrow if I nailed it right!
