Hi, if I was to sand my cheap eucalyptus didge back, what is the traditional method of painting it? I know that a few people said to paint ochre on using PVA, but then I heard that PVA effects the sound in a negative way. What else could I use to paint the didge, while keeping it sounding optimal?

PVA glue affects the sound when poured on the inside, yes.
But not if coated on the outside.

Ochres mixed with egg white forms a binder for painting the exterior.

My recently purchased didge was a survivor of a massive store fire snd is one of the few instruments to emerge intact , it has a smoky odor but seems to play well . How do I prevent future problems due to such extreme exposure to heat ?

I am not sure exactly what you mean, millions of didges are kept in air conditioned dry atmosphere homes year in year out.
Most survive just fine, the more you play it the more moisture you will give so if it still plays fine, just keep playing.
