For a honeycomb looking effect I think smaller is better.

They both look nice but I think the 1/4" allows the resin to show off its multiple colors without too much aluminum getting in the way. For a solid color either look good.

I agree with JohnU. Both look good, but unless it's a solid colors the 1/4" shows more of the color. Both are very well done, Phil!
