I have seen several posts where the brush is "loaded" with soap then the actual lather is built in a seperate bowl. I have been beating the stuff up right on top of the soap. Am I doing it wrong or does one work as well as the other?

Seriously, though, whatever works for you. I start on the soap, then hit the bowl.

The only shaving soap I lather directly on my face is that from the QED shaving sticks. I end up putting my brush back into a (lathering) bowl after the first pass lather for subsequent passes.
