Double Tea Light Holder, Acrylics

Today I added Bronze Metallic acrylic paint to half of the Double Tea Light Holder.
I finished one side and end with gel stain and the other with acrylics. Normally I wouldn’t do this but seeing as it is for a magazine article and I wanted to show two methods of finishing, this will work just fine.
Which finish do you like the best? Comments are welcome.
Apply acrylics with a small brush not allowing any puddles in the bottom of your carving
Wrap a damp cotton rag tightly around your finger to wipe off any acrylic that gets on the surface.
