I did wonder that, but the white marks were there while I was still scraping, before brushing/scotch pad.

White marks will be there from excess wax. Scotchbrite will polish it out. Reward your board now. Don't bother cleaning it because between the waxing and scraping the. Brass brushing, your base is clean right now. Apply the wax, let it cool, scrape, then scotchbrite. You're done unless you're gonna ride powder. You can nylon after or skip to the cork.

Any cork will work. I've been using a cork top for one of my jars. I've even used a wine bottle cork before lol.

It's tough to tell in the pics if the white streaks are from excess wax or too little (dryness). Scrub at it with Scotchbrite. If the white streaks go away, you just had excess wax and buffed them out. If the streaks remain, then you stripped the wax when you used the brass brush and need to rewax. That brush should only be used to help strip away old wax, before you wax. It's purpose is to pull old wax and dirt out, so you don't lock the dirt in with new wax.

Waxing really is simple. Strip the old with a brush, wax on, scrape off, and buff.

Most of the videos I've seen have used a brush to restructure the base after waxing, (including the demo we attended at a local shop recently).

Don't forget to brush and buff after THOROUGH scraping.

That's getting really involved with waxing. You really don't need structure for anything other than the fluffiest of pow. Any level of rougher snow is going to completely do away your base structure.

When you do structure your base, you aren't applying much force when brushing. You can also structure with a scotchbrite. Other than that, brass is suited for the steps before waxing, not after.
