I just upgraded from my tweezerman (great, great brush for newbies like me). Got a large badger silvertip off of ebay, believe 28mm knot...anyway it's a whole lot bigger than the tweezer. It's a great brush in terms of its feel and build quality. Problem is, I seem to be having a lot of issues getting a good lather with it. It just seems to soak up whatever I throw its way!
Any advice from some more seasoned veterans would be appreciated. I assume it's something I'm doing wrong rather than the brush itself. Do I just need to use more cream / soap? Am I pressing to much with the brush in the bowl? I've heard it's best just to use the tip of the brush for mixing a good lather. Help!
