Removing thin set from concrete balcony

I need help with ideas on how to remove thin set from my concrete balcony? I want to avoid if possible renting a sander. If I paint over it will I still be able to see the swipes from the thin set? When I bought my condo, the previous owner had that lovely green turf/fake grass covering up the big surprise underneath.....thin set smears.
