what type of paint should I use on my boots?

I've got an old, but still in good condition, pair of black redback boots, comfotable and practival, but I want to customize them a bit,I've got this very nice skull stencil from my friend and I want to paint it onto the toes of the boot, but I don't want it to wash off, or wear away, is there any particular paint I should use?

another tips about customizing boots would be apriciated too

I'm not really sure, but what you can dry is either spray paint or try putting white shoe polish, or whatever color over it (the stencil). Tell me how it comes out.

NO!! Don't ruin your boots by using spray paint! I have found that fabric paint works best. Although, it works better on suede-like materials instead of smooth/patent leather. Have you had a go at making your own designs? It's pretty easy to do. Get some white eyeliner and draw some designs on your boots, then you can paint them over. And if you make a mistake you can wipe away the white eyeliner with a damp cloth. Oh, if you haven't used fabic paint before you'll need to practice on an old piece of cloth or better still, a pair of really old worn boots you don't wear anymore. Remember to give your boots a good clean beforehand. If there are any scuff marks you want rid of you can by using a non-abrasive pencil eraser. Clean the welt (the stitching area between top of the boot and sole) and seams with an old toothbrush. A stiff non-metallic brush, sponge, and a bit of water will reasonably clean your boots. Once you've painted them they'll be ready in about 72 hours or so.
