Unlike the Dun-causing modifiers, Satin cannot cause a dorsal stripe. However it can instead cause a glass-like sheen along the top-line of the body, encompassing approximately the range of sable. Malani displays this design choice.
This sheen is best created by creating an overlay or screen layer in your art program, using a soft-edged brush or airbrush to put a swipe of a lighter-than-base color along the topline of the ket, creating a new overlay or sheen layer over the first one, putting thin white lines where you want the highlights to be, and then very gently blurring them.
This sheen may cause slight hue-shifting but it shouild still be visibly clear what the base coat is.

• The sheen, if used, should go over all other markings.
