What you’re describing sounds like either frosted feathers (which is a genetic factor causing the lipochrome pigment to not reach the very tip of the feathers) or overly prominent down feathers.

Australian canaries are starting their moult right about now, so you’re probably seeing some extra white feathers as the older coloured feathers are replaced.
