If you’re looking to update or revamp a leather product, such as a jacket, shoes, or bag, then choosing the right leather paint colour can make all the difference. With so many options available, it can be overwhelming to choose the perfect shade that will match your style and preferences.
Our Leather Paint Colour Chart is an essential tool for anyone who needs to choose leather paint colours for a project. Whether you’re a professional painter, interior designer, or DIYer, our colour chart provides a comprehensive range of colours and shades that can help you make informed decisions about the right shade to choose.

Here are some tips to help you choose the right leather paint colour:
Consider the overall look and feel
Before selecting a colour, consider the overall look and feel you want to achieve. Are you looking for a bold, statement piece, or something more subtle? If you’re aiming for an understated look, then neutral colours like black, brown, or beige are a safe bet. On the other hand, if you want to create a statement piece, consider bold colours like red, green, or blue.
Think about the type of leather
Different types of leather take colours differently, so it’s important to consider the type of leather you’re working with. Aniline, for instance, is a more porous leather that will soak up more paint, while coated or pigmented leather will require more prep work before painting. Ensure that you choose a paint that is specifically formulated for the type of leather you’re working with.
Test the paint
Before applying the leather paint, always test it on a small, inconspicuous area first. This will give you an idea of how the colour will look on your leather product and also help you determine the necessary number of coats you’ll need to achieve your desired look.
Don’t be afraid to get creative and mix colours to achieve a custom shade. You can also add some texture or pattern to your leather product by using stencils or painting designs.
Choosing the right leather paint colour may seem daunting, but with these tips, you will be able to achieve a beautiful, stylish finish that perfectly compliments your style and personality.
