You can make leather look like anything if you want to.

Artists paint on leather with designs and pictures to create something different and bespoke.

Painting on leather is done with leather colours designed for leather colouring.

Leather colours can be thinned down either with lacquer or water for this process and applied by sponge or extra fine airbrushes like a Paasche airbrush.

Artists can airbrush designs on leather from the leather colourants, or you can draw a design on then hand paint them on. Sealing over the design with clear coat lacquer topcoat is essential.

Cleaning painted designs has to be done with great care, use a natural aniline leather cleaner to gently rub over the surface on a terry towel making sure you don’t rub too hard, rubbing too hard may bring off the design.

Always keep designs protected with a protection cream at all to avoid damage and drying out.
