Wok reseasoning

Hi fellas,
I bought my first wok recently and I seasoned it. I am not sure of results that are good or bad. My wok is all black in the middle and low-side. I checked pictures on google and they are not so black as my. Could I overdo it that I have burned my new wok? I tried to cook some food and tastes good and its nonsticky, but I am not really sure about results... Eventually can I reseason it completely like scrubbing all off and start again? Many thanks for all replies,
Luke

Sounds perfectly seasoned to me, did your food taste burned?

Hi PrincessFiona and thx for reply. It doesnt taste burn. However, layer of patina seems to be very thick since first seasoning. Also when clean my wok after use, then dry it with high temp. Then I oil it with white kitchen roll and I can still see black residue on paper towel. Is this normal?

If you think you have to much on or if you have rough edges. Rub it down with salt.

Seasoning is primarily intended to prevent rusting. It also provides a slick non-stick surface. If you have that, it's time to sit back and enjoy.
