I have a pair of pleather shoes that I want to paint on what would be the best way to do that?

I have read online in places that you can use acrylic if you sand them down but, they do not talk about a sealer. Would I need a sealer like something special or could I use one from the craft department?

Thank you

Well I used cheap acrylic paint, the kind that comes in 99 cent bottles mixed with an acrylic medium to paint the pleather. Pleather, on the other hand, is made out of plastic and will not absorb dyes. Some sprays will work, but they usually apply a coat of color instead of being soaked into the fabric. As such, the coating may chip and flake with wear and movement.
