It depends on the type of paint. Some will just peel off, other types may require a little persuasion. You can probably use acetone or laquer thinner for most paints, but as with all strong chemicals, test it in an inconspicuous place. If necessary, take it to a drycleaners that specializes in leather.

How do you make leather paint?

Leather is usually dyed rather than painted. Most paints don't adhere all that well to leather, and since leather is flexible, paint tends to crack and peel off.If you really want to paint leather, you're better off buying a paint specifically designed for the purpose rather than trying to make one yourself.

Could you put turps on your leather jacket to remove paint?

Definitely not recommended! If it is a hard leather with almost a waxy finish the turps will buckle the material and fade it, and soft leather will probably disintergrate. I've found (after leaving motorcycle leathers in the garage) that paint on leather is a killer. I found that by scratching off most of the paint with a new toothbrush and applying baby shampoo over night (just wipe of with wam water) will help lift most if not all paint off and if that fails apply a mild sugar soap (available from most hardware stores) will get the toughest of stains off but causes mild fading. Good luck!
