Seasoning a new wok

cllmlmb | Jun 12, 201802:35 AM     11

Hello! I bought my first wok recently and read about seasoning it online. I scrubbed the wok with steel wool, dried it, heated it, then chucked a couple of tablespoons of lard in there and tried to spread it around with a towel grasped firmly in a pair of tongs. Well, the lard seemed to vanish almost immediately and now the wok looks a bit odd. I’m sure I’ve made some idiotic mistake and screwed it up, I’ve attached a picture for reference. What should I do next?
