I find three layers enough, even in big pots.
Usually do pink or pink & white tulips on the bottom, then grape hyacinths in the middle and white or cream early crocus on top and put a couple of small pieces of small-leaved variegated ivy at the edges of the pot to trail down the sides.
Grape hyacinths are fab in layered pots - you can plant them really close and they burst upwards like a blue powder puff They also work well layered with Tete a tete or Minnow daffs.
