MudBug - did you find any answers about dyeing/ painting leather?

i dyed my leathers and it held up ok. I have crashed since and the original color is showing in some areas. Just keep in mind that you will have to constantly touch up. You may get all areas the first time but as you wear it the leather will rub the dye off. If there is a better way to seal it in there please let us all know. And it will make the leather stiff like its new so you may want to condition it a few times. be careful with spraying the non leather parts, like the stretch part in arms and crotch areas. I still hate it when i wear my suit because of it.

I hope this helps out.

Oh and I could only find white and black leather dye.
