The bleach shouldn’t seep thru the nitro and shellac. Wet and ring out a rag with the bleach and wipe the body. Let it dry and see how it affected the coloring. Repeat until all coloring is gone. Afte ...

With what you have now, I would think about using household Chlorine bleach to remove the coloring. Clean the surface with wipes of naptha and let dry. Wipe the bleach onto the surface and let dry. Th ...
