MC cover off for the self bleeding.
A couple things you can try. If you have a mighty vac, empty the master cylinder and force brake fluid in the slave until it comes up in the master cylinder (cover off).
If you don't have a mighty vac, you need to "bench bleed" your master cylinder. Remove the brake line from the master cylinder and hold your thumb over the output while pumping the brake lever. Once you get brake fluid with pressure with your thumb, quickly put on the brake line again and continue bleeding. Another place for air to get trapped where it will not come out easily is at the junction below the horns.
Painted surfaces and brake fluid do not get along so have plenty of plastic bags (I use leaf bags) and rags.
