It works great, but I've found a much cheaper alternative: Valspar 'velvet' spray paint(formerly Krylon 'Make it Suede'). It comes in several different colors, in larger cans than the SM stuff, and I get mine at my local Michaels store for about 6 bucks a can after using one of their 40% coupons.

I did the interior of my V-Bucket with the Krylon stuff, in 'buckskin' color:

It doesn't photograph well, but I got a nice, grainy leather-like texture on this chopper seat by shooting Make It Suede topped with Tamiya semigloss black:

I LOVE Make-It-Suede. I have a can in a beige color I've used for years. It works great for everything from crinkle-finished engine parts to Alcantara interiors. I just paint over it with whatever color I need. Good to know that it's still around for when I need to replace this can (although I've had it for ten years now!)
