Hello. Here's a tutorial that might help you plan your project.
I just used this product today!!! I realized once I took my tree down my leather sofa had faded (a lot). Love how it brought the color back. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FOKONJ0/ref=sspa_dk_detail_1?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B00FOKONJ0&pd_rd_w=GBIIq&pf_rd_p=f0355a48-7e73-489a-9590-564e12837b93&pd_rd_wg=N0FlO&pf_rd_r=AASQ5Y863YAX3T5X104P&pd_rd_r=a894f34a-5500-48db-885b-127bb75dca29&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEyUE8wS01FSTM2WVNTJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwMDEyMzQ4MUtXOFAySDk4OVIwMiZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwNjM5MzM5RVdZSU1CSFdJWFgxJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfZGV0YWlsX3RoZW1hdGljJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==
Would have thought paint would crack, might be better to use a shoe cream/ polish to repair faded areas or use a Leather Dye rather than paint.

You can buy the proper leather during kits, but they are not always successful. They can be patchy in places.
Hi Lavatte: There are specific paints for leather furniture. Leather paints are acrylic-based paints created specifically for work on leather and faux leather. Though you can also use standard acrylic paints from a craft store, leather paints are not much more expensive and are made to adhere to these types of materials without chipping, peeling, or cracking over time. Before painting, wipe the leather with Isopropyl alcohol to degrease, clean and remove any coatings, waxes, or oils that may be on the leather. If alcohol does not remove the coating, it may be necessary to lightly sand the surface with some fine sandpaper.
