Lime Wash for painted Surfaces

New to this forum and first post.

I'm considering lime washing a cement rendered wall that has already been painted.

As I have never prepared or used lime wash I am concerned that the lime wash will not stick to the already painted surface.

So what do I have to do first. Do I pre seal the painted surface with a underecoat/sealer - do I rough the the surface with an orbital sander or should something else be done first.

So where and how do I start to prepare the surface ?.

You will need to remove 100% of the paint, or do something different.

Too much paint to remove - very large area.

What about concrete paved paths. I have some ugly concrete paths that I can paint if needed.

Just wondering if a lime wash can be used that will give it some character and variation as opposed to a flat colour.
