I have a real wicker (not resin) patio dining set. It's painted a
glossy whitish color and is yellowing. I'd like to paint it a
different color, I'm concerned about preparing the surface. It seems
like using a stripper or physical sanding to roughen the existing
paint might damage or weaken the wicker. Suggestions?
Body shops use a paint softener on in-accessable places of cars when
doing a color change. The softener gives decent paint adhesion where
sanding is next to impossible. Available at any auto paint supply
place. Thoroughly wash the piece first, let dry, wash it with the
softening agent (usually sprayed) and spray your paint on as per
instructions from the softener supplier and the paint being used.
Test the piece with the softener in a small area before commiting
