What do you use to prepare leather shoes or purses for paint"; and what type of paints should be used?  Also, what product should be used over the paints to preserve?  Thanks!!!  Undecided

Cova Color acrylics work beautifully on leather and fabrics.  Just paint them on, then finish up with a sheen product to seal it in and make it look a little shinier.  I've also had good luck with the cheap acrylics you can find at places like Wal-Mart for painting on leather for non-wearables.  The cheaper acrylics tend to chip, but if you seal it with something, it might not be as bad.

Cova Colors and Super Sheen are available at Tandy Leather

On a soft leather coat (not the hard leather, the buttery soft kind) I have used the cheapy wal-mart colors and they never chipped. I'm not going to guarantee anything, but I thought I would share the story.  (I painted this HUGE white mermaid on a old school nineties-style leather coat.)

Also, on another board that I just clicked off of and can't find the link to, someone painted a pair of adidas shoes and to prep the leather she used extra strength nail polish remover.
