Tandy sells acrylics that have always done good for the few projects I've painted.  Just remember, . . . nothing painted will always stay pristine, . . . 

I always go over my paint work with Resolene, . . . and I go over the painted part a couple extra times to protect the art work.

Sadly, . . . using the leather object will eventually wear the finish, . . . and can wear it off the inside.  In the case of a clutch purse, . . . holster, . . . or other such piece, . . . it can get wet from the inside, . . . but unless it gets fully soaked, you will usually be alright, . . . the finish itself tending to try to retain the shape.

Personally, . . . I always seal the whole project, . . . inside and out, . . . and Resolene is my product of choice.

EDIT:  The one exception to sealing the inside is if I use a soft liner such as suede or pigskin.

May God bless,

Dwight

If you are asking, then I would suggest buying Angelus paint and sealer.  They arw formulated to work together, and Angelus guarantees it won't peel or flake if you follow their directions.

These are the paints used by the sneakerheads for restoring leather athletic shoes.

There are lots of good products on the market, but theirs have so much support and tutorials via Youtube, etc., that they are very friendly to use.
