Not an easy mold

I was excited to receive the sphere molds and was sorely disappointed after trying them with cold process soap. I secured the molds with rubber bands as suggested and used the injector to fill the molds. Using the injector, I filled each sphere, only to notice the soap was creeping between the two molds banded together. Additionally, some spheres would fill, others were left with a small crater on top. Also, when an air pocket would rise, soap would spurt out of one of the sphere holes. I will try it with melt and pour next just to see what my results are. For CP- this didn't work for me, but may work for someone else.

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!
