Those with brushed are said to have been anointed in the forelife before being sent off, marked as a favorite of the gods. The more prominent the brushed, the more trouble they had letting go.

Symmetry Rules


  • Brushed must be symmetrical.
  • At least two features must be brushed. Check options under Explanation and Interactions.
  • Brushed can have semi-soft edges on the face. Elsewhere brushed should be blended with soft edges.
  • Brushed on the legs must still be symmetrical but can be angled.
  • Brushed can make use of up to two values.
  • Brushed must start from the tips of the toes and the nose if secondary value is used.
  • Brushed does not have to cover the full yellow range as long as a significant portion is covered.
  • Brushed secondary value can never mimic any other markings, such as tears.
  • Brushed secondary value should stay relatively close to the minimum boundary, and should not fully extend up the arm or neck.

Brushed markings closely resemble the colorpoint pattern in cats, with the second layer serving as a effective way to create darker areas around the muzzle and eyes. However, it's important to note that the brushed markings should still be connected, and at least two parts of the boundaries must be colored in with the brushed pattern.

Generally, it manifests on the countenance, cranium, limbs, and tail, exhibiting gentle contours while potentially featuring intricate embellishments on the facial area.

You have the following options when applying brushed:
• head and tail
• head and at least two legs (front or back)
• tail and at least two legs
• all three!

Face Mask Values

Brushed can either have one clear color or two values. The two values must be clearly differentiable and not blend into any other colors.

When working with two values, it's recommended to first put down the primary color and blend if needed. After that, go in with the second color. Please note the second color should ALWAYS be darker than the "base" color.

If your rex has an elaborate face mask, here's some tips on how to design it:

Lay down base colors.

Use a darker colored brush as the base coat. Be mindful of the hue.
It should not look like another color entirely, but only be darker.

Do this with a soft brush:

Use an even darker color to put down more elaborate pattern on the face.

For this you can use both, a semi soft and a soft brush.


Leg Boundaries

If your rex's legs are affected by brushed, the marking should significantly extend over the yellow border somewhere. However, the marking can be angled to reveal the upper or underside of the foot.
Be mindful to make sure not to leave too much yellow. It should somewhat look like the first three examples below.
Here are some do's and dont's:


An example for only two places:


Careful here!

Brushed is only in one place, but needs to be two at minimum!
Holes should never happen. Even if you use the second value, it must be darker!

Color Rule Change

When dominant, brushed can be lighter than the basecoat.
