Default Botched Seasoning Attempt - Spotting


I completely utterly botched my first attempt at seasoning.

On the initial seasoning stage, I did not adequately wipe off *all* of the Crisco. As a result, even though the pan was upside down, the excess Crisco
congealed into small droplets, resulting in spotting on the pan's surface and drip marks on the sides. These are not sticky, and they don't have a noticeable feel on the pan, but they're uglier than home-made sand.

I realize I can strip the pan (another new technique that is certain to be botched), however if I simply continue to use the pan, will the ugly spots eventually disappear as the seasoning builds, or am I doomed to look at them for all eternity?

Thank you for your guidance,
