Tips on Bondo (Body Filler)

As you can see I have a little (sarcastic) ding on my rear fender and plan on using bondo to at least blend it in better cause I don't have the money to go to a shop. I've never done it before so more detail is appreciated

Sand before applying Bondo.Follow the directions. It is like sculpting. I suck at sculpting but I am pretty good at body work. You also need one of these. When it dries sand it. Then caress it like a woman. Feel the bondo and know wither you need to add more or sand more. I spray a light coat of primer to get a better idea of how my work will look after paint is applied.

Is there a problem applying bondo on top of its self? Say I don't fill It in enough or is it best to apply apply a lot then sand sand it down? How long do you let it dry before applying more or sanding?

My bad just noticed you said you can apply on top of itself. What kind of paint did you use? A spray can from the dealer or what?
