The whole theory behind this play is to win pots without a showdown. So really, I wouldn't need to be drawing for anything. Even if you get one caller to the flop, he may have a med/high pair(JJ, 10-10, even QQ), hoping to hit a set. If he doesn't get it, then a c-bet would force him out.
I know that a 3-bet usually means AA or KK. Most other players know this too. So the villian will have this in the back of his mind if he decides to call (I did).
This is probally an advanced play, and probally shouldn't be attempted by a beginner. It will require some reading, and post flop skills.
I'll let you know if it works ( if I get the nerv to try it)
