When are Diacritical Marks Added? Are they added to All consonants, or a select few?

Can Diacritical marks be added to ALL consonants (I'm guessing there are 33), such as this one, or only certain consonants?

In general, they can be added to all consonants. However, there are some exceptions. For example, the ृ mark is not added to र.
