Prepare the surface

More good info from people (thx silver dollar).

Make sure the surface of the leather is free from impurities like grease, as the paint might not take to the surface.

The other thing suggested by several people, was to very lightly (and i mean lightly), rub the area to be painted with a VERY FINE wet and dry paper. The idea being that the paint will sink into the surface and bond to the leather. A bit like a tatoo.

I would practice this on a scrap bit of leather first, to get the technique right.
