I attempted to search, but couldn't really figure out what to search for, so if anybody has links, post them. I have a Traben Array Attack that has had various damages over the years, especially to the veneer top. Because it was a gift I want to redo it, and have paints and hardware and such selected for it. Anyway, the paint is a black with small gold flake in it, and I would like to know if there's a way I can blend the edge between the veneer and the body where the veneer split off, so that it won't show through when I paint it? I tried, but I can't seem to get the transition smooth enough. Would I be better off just removing the entire veneer?
