1/2 a bar of wax is WAYY too much.

Youre supposed to iron the wax until its all melted all over the board evenly, then let it dry, then scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape until nothing is coming off anymore. The wax is IN your base, not ON it.

The whole purpose of the ironing process is to heat the board up and allow the pores in the ptex to open and let wax in. Once the board cools, the wax that got in the pores is there to stay, and the wax on top is just excess and needs to be completely scraped off.
