Actually you didn't do anything wrong, the Filon surface can be a little unpredictable at times when it comes to waxing, especially the front cap (oxidation plays into it). I've had the same thing happen with my Eagle's Filon surface, but I was able to get the wax off using a damp towel with a little "elbow grease".
A couple of years ago I went to the Filon manufacture's site and they recommended using a specific rubbing compound on the front cap to remove the oxidation first, then apply the wax....., it worked for me. The sides of my TT don't seem to give me as much trouble.
