    The key to good adhesion of acrylic paint to leather objects is applying the paint thinly enough to soak into the leather. If thick paint is used or built up too thickly, there may be an increased chance the paint may crack when flexed. Acrylics are thermoplastics and respond to environmental temperatures.

    If the leather is stretched and mounted, like canvas for a painting, and has a primer applied, the wall paint might stick.

    But if the leather is to be worn, no. It'll flake and chip.
