2 Piece Ice Sphere Mold: This fun and inventive 3D mold makes 14 perfectly round soap spheres. Embed them in your soap or just use them as guest soaps. The mold is 1 1/8" and holds about .6 ounces of soap.
Tip: We found that securing the mold with 2 or 3 rubber bands was really helpful. Without them, we found that the soap leaked a little between our spheres. Also, the injector tool (from PJ's Tool Kit) fits perfectly into the round holes for a cleaner pour.
Another Tip: This mold is not a flexible mold and it can be tricky to get soap out of. We recommend allowing your soap to set-up for at least 24 hours before unmolding. The plastic can crack and break if too much force is applied trying to get fresh soap released.

Hi Cynthia! I'm sorry this mold wasn't your favorite. We've found it works well for melt and pour soap, but does require some clean up, as seen in this Marvelous Soap Marbles Tutorial. In the tutorial, some soap did get in between the molds, but you can clean that off after it's hardened. To get rid of those craters, you can use a heat gun to smooth those out. Also, to help prevent air bubbles, give that mold a good tap. I'll be emailing you personally to help troubleshoot!

During this cleanse, Patti discovered lacto-fermentation of vegetables. This discovery soon developed into a hobby, which has now turned into a […]
