Rareb By Yamashta-daok468 by Ulfrheim Dusted - A rare marking, Dusted creates tiny, freckle-like spots that may appear over any part of a Felvarg's body as long as it also meets minimum requirements. Dusted may be lighter or darker than the base coat, and may contain multiple colors.

THIS ICON IS NOT FREE by Ulfrheim Dusted has a minimum requirement. It can appear anywhere on a Felvarg but it must be present in at least two of the red ranges below!

THIS ICON IS NOT FREE by Ulfrheim Dusted may consist of 1-2 colors, so long as they are blended smoothly (a gradient) into each other within the same cluster. If the clusters are separated they may be two separate and distinct colors without a gradient shift. The chosen color(s) must be natural to the base color.

THIS ICON IS NOT FREE by Ulfrheim Dusted should not used to mimic the specks of helix by, for example, combining it with highlight. 

THIS ICON IS NOT FREE by Ulfrheim The shape and size of dusted should not vary drastically across the design. It should not be clustered together in large near-touching clusters and should be consistent across the design.

THIS ICON IS NOT FREE by Ulfrheim Dusted may be perfectly round to create dusted or star-type marks 

THIS ICON IS NOT FREE by Ulfrheim In its dominant form Dusted may appear to have a glow.
