Okay, so lets start this with the fact that I have 0 budget but plenty o' tools. I've sanded down my bass and found that there are nicks in the body that somebody painted through. I heard there is a technique to pull the nicks out by swelling the wood with a wet rag and saudering gun. I've looked on google/youtube with little success (possibly bad search words) what is the proper way to do this and can/will it damage the body? ALSO; I plan on having a friend come by and drawing on the back of the body. What utensils should we use, and should we do something to the wood that would help it stick but with zero bleeding if we used ink? We will be clear coating it after this whole ordeal is finished. just so that's clear. Please no flaming, i'm new to this whole ordeal. Anything helps.
