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.
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!
