    i know of wood putty but i don't think it will work in this case.

    ive been working on a bass of my own.
    and ive sanded down parts where i shouldn't have.

    is there a wood plaster that i can mold and sand so it looks as if i never touched that part of the bass?

    (im going to paint over so the differance in colour (plaster/wood) wouldn't make a difference)

    A hint from my days as a model maker: Bondo. It won't shrink and sands well. Not the most pleasant stuff to work with. Work outside and wear a chemical respirator. We used it for nearly anything and it always held up and took paint well.
