was quite simple actually...there is a thread by "Good-old-pete" infamous for his "Hello Kitty" shower curtains, he dyed his leathers using a brush...

I did mine with a spray-paint like leather dye (do not use spray paint, needs to be leather dye)

I did mine in sections, allowing it to dry before I moved on to the next section to avoid paint transfer onto other areas. With the spray can it is hard to avoid overspray on smaller details like the "lightning" pattern on my jacket as you can see I sprayed onto the white but I did not care because I'm going over that in black and it does not show through.

I dont know how the dye will hold up once I put the leathers to use, but I've given them ample time to dry and did a fingernail scratch test, dye didnt come off so I hope it will last!

if your goin to use aerosol then cover up with paper what you dont want colored, I wouldnt use tape as it might lift paint with it.
