Maltese is a color mutation that turns the base coat color of the beast into a shade of blue. The color itself cannot be chosen freely and has to be taken from the swatch found under “Colors”! However, it is allowed to create a slight gradient from the top to bottom by picking two different colors.
The new base coat color has an influence on markings, which are relevant to the base coat color, as well! Instead of taking the original base coat color (e.g. Earth, Snow or Suntouched Fawn) as a reference, the colors of the markings have to be relevant to the blue picked from the swatch.
Any additional markings that are present in the phenotype are optional and do not have to be added to the design.
