I managed to get most of the white paint spots off my leather steering wheel. First I used a small sharp pointed knife (Leatherman Squirt blade) and VERY VERY CAREFULLY picked off the white spot of paint without damaging the leather. If it didn't want to shift easily I tried using a fingernail. Then I just used a baby wipe (or two) between my fingernail and the wheel to get most of the rest of the paint off. I have managed to get all of the bigger spots off virtually completely and most of the smaller ones that were obvious. It's a 75 % improvement on how it was before I started. Just need to be carefull not to overdoo the rubbing otherwise it will take off the shine/surface of the leather but this can probably be rectified with a leather treatment.
I probably found it easier as it was a steering wheel and the leather is tight and the surface is hard compared to a leather seat.
