It's all still a learning curve for me, I have been freezing them in layers. I think the thickness of the ice also makes a difference. I will keep experimenting

Gorgeous Colleen, Love this idea, may even have a go myself.
For ice that's especially clear, use distilled water that has been boiled and then cooled.
This limits impurities and air bubbles, which make ice cloudy.
