Faux leather look

Does anyone know how to achieve a faux leather look? I thought of doing it on just one wall in our den. I have some ideas but would love any helpful tips! I achieved it on a small cardboard box by painting the box black. Layer of crackle finish. Then, rubbing on brown shoe cream. Turned out beautiful! Don't think I could find enough shoe cream to do an entire wall! Thanks, Teresa
