I seasoned my cast-iron pan, and it feels sticky. Is this normal?

I'm new to cooking with cast-iron, and recently bought this Lodge pan. After the first use (scrambled eggs), I scrubbed it gently with warm water (no soap). I then coated it with vegetable shortening (this brand, which says it has a smoke point of 450°F), and placed it in the oven at 400°F. After about 15 min., I noticed smoke coming out (and smelled somthing burning), so I lowered the temp to 350°F, and left the pan in the oven for an hour. Now that the pan has cooled off, it has a very sticky residue. Is this normal?
