nothing. Smear the wax around to get somewhat even coverage, then slowly iron from tip to tail for the final stage. There should be 3 or 4 smooth "ribbons" of wax from tip to tail when you let it dry. Scrape. Buff.
Ok as to the sticking not meaning anything. What do you mean 3 or 4 ribbons when it dries? What I was doing was just melting the wax and going up and down horizontally not tip to tail. As soon as I put enough wax on I immediately started ironing and spreading then letting dry and scrape etc. Is this not right?
