Dust is a marking that darkens the back half of the design. It must cover at least the hindlegs and may cover everything until the middle of the beast.
The edge does not have to be clearly visible! Fully blending the edge into the base coat color so the transition from marking to the base is not discernible anymore is perfectly fine.
Relevant to: Base
Can be white: No
Layering: Designer’s choice
