Suspended Inbeds?

I had problems with a "line" that I just couldn't get rid of when pouring in layers. Using embeds with a "loop" and regular sewing thread works best for me. I've also been able to wait until the gel is almost set and then placing fish, etc., in and then use a heat gun to gently urge it to slightly sink.

It depends. I used LP from C & S when I did gel candles and I would get my stuff to stay. I think the trick is to pour your candles at a decent temperature. This way they won't melt in the gel. I would never have to pour twice or in layers.

I have never poured in layers. I just let the gel cool until I can put my finger into the gel without burning it and that's when I know it's time to put the embeds in. You can get rid of the lines with a heat gun. Just be careful you don't let the glass get too hot or the embeds will melt.
