UVLS is a far superior product for that purpose @jord001. UVLS has a higher solids content compared to trans base and/or 4030. The higher solids content creates a better carrier for pearl and metallic flakes (I also prefer UVLS as a carrier for candy2o). It sprays better and lays down better based on my experience. One other thing worth mentioning... UVLS Gloss has the best adhesion properties according to Createx. I don't know why that is, but I only use the gloss for those purposes. I do use satin or matte for a final top coat on fine art.
