yeah you are...but it takes a lot of practice to get used to it...just move quicker when you are dripping and space out your squiggles a little more.

that diagram looks like alot more "drips than necessary except for the first waxing. Your subsequent waxings should use alot less than the first time.start with minimal wax and spread thinly only using as much as necessary....

I always try to go with as little wax as possible. You can always add more wax but you can't take away.

Yeah well I wasn't paying attention to how far I put the dots.

And you can't get a "wax number" out of a bar of wax. Different board sizes, shapes, levels of wax absorption, melting rates, and drip methods. You're using it until it's gone, right?

...except with scraping. Really, you can use too much. It won't kill your board. Just scrape and clean it well enough. It does sound like you used a bit much, but it takes a few times to get it right.

I was really tempted to say damn he must be hairy but I resisted. yea I usually put too much wax on my board also tbh and make a big mess, if you spread it right you don't need to use a huge amount.

more and more you do it you'll see you need less... the edges are the main problem areas esp. with up east coast ice riders....dont worry about the tail n nose so much till you see it dry... stick to the middle area and every few wax's hit up the nose and tip unless you see it's really dry.
