For a candle in jar...I want to make red & white. Do I pour in the white, let it set (cool) and then pour the red in???

If you want white on the bottom, yes. I never let them set until totally hard, but until they are almost hard. It melds the two colors together better. More like one candle instead of having a white one under a red one.

you'll see a skin of harder wax form on the top of the white. don't wait too long or, as Tonya said, they won't bond together and you may see a line of air where the colors change. If you DO end up with a discoloration (waxes mixing) or a line/crack between the colors, wrap a pretty ribbon around that spot :)
