I love the smoke rings analogy. Also try blowing into your recorder so softly that there is no sound. Then ever so gradually build up the pressure until it sounds, then increase it further until the sound it unpleasant. Do this a few times, you’ll get a better feel for the breath pressure that make the instrument sound nice.

Mostly alto, plays with Balmain Baroque
