Good shave tonight. Face lathering went well—got the brush pasty, kept adding water, and eventually got it to where it needed to be. Thanks for the tips @benos!
Only issue was entirely my fault when I went ATG on a small area on the first pass and got a weeper for my troubles. Whoops.
Live and learn.
