I've got a bit of a noob question.

My board has a sintered base with a black and white design, and while waxing and scraping last night, I noticed that the shavings had the color of the design underneath. So, either the wax took on the color of the base (wax color is pink), or I've scraped through the wax and into the base.

Is it possible, with a fiberglass scraper, to scrape off too much wax and start taking out the base?

Also, how hard/durable is the base? I've got some shallow gouges in the base, but when I scratch at them with just my fingernail, it looks like I can sort of "even out" the edges of the gouges, if that makes sense. So I'm not sure if those small gouges are just in the wax, or into the base.
