How Do You Remove Paint From Resin Wood?

Removing paint from wood poses special challenges. Wood is a very porous material that basically drinks other liquids, meaning that the paint is not just on the surface but deep within the wood itself. If you are going to paint over the wood, chemical treatments are fine. If you wish to stain or clean the wood you’ll need to sand the piece to remove the paint. Different types of wood will require different amounts of work in order to remove a sufficient amount of weight. Wipe down the wood you will be sanding using a clean handkerchief or rag. This will remove debris that may cause your sander to slip or make gouges in the wood. Sand the painted areas using the soft brush head on your sander on a low setting. It will not appear to be working at first but keep it on the low setting for several minutes. This will prevent damage to the wood. Cover the soft brush head with a clean handkerchief by gently wrapping it around the head. Do not affix it to the head, as it needs to be loose. Sand
