I'm working on my Theron Shan costume and the jacket has been painted but it keeps tearing bits off from movement and I don't know what i should seal it with if that will work? If anyone has any ideas it would be greatly appreciated.

If it's reg spray paint it might not be adhering to the jacket well. I used liquitex acrylic spray paint, and it adhered great to my leather Dr Fate costume. I didn't even have to seal it with anything.
But if you don't want to reprint it, might try clear acrylic spray? Do test areas first to make sure it will work.

Sorry, just saw this...

DulpiColor makes a car fabric and vinyl spray that stays flexible. You can also try sealing what you have done with Mod Podge spray.
