Fabric too boring?  Airbrush it!  There’s a lot a lot a lotttttt of white in my sakizou skirt, so I wanted to give the edges a little bit of a purple gradient.  You could achieve the same thing with ombre dyeing, but typically just if you have a mostly natural fabric, and ombre/gradient dyeing in general can be a massive pain.  Airbrushing is a lot easier to control, especially for subtle colors, plus it’s much faster.

watershedplus:

On rare years when the conditions are right in the arid landscape of the Badlands, in the American West, wildflowers burst into a display of colour for just a few days.
The vegetation in the region has adapted to the climate, with just a small amount of moisture the desert can become coloured with sweeping fields of Scorpion Weed, Beeplant and the flowers of the Pincushion Cacti. These blooms can be very short-lived to conserve moisture.
