Interesting Technique for Melt and Pour Soap

Yesterday I was watching an episode of That's Clever on HGTV. In this particular episode, Cassandra Lanning of Bothell, Wash., created spooky Halloween soaps. She made bone soaps, a crystal ball and a casket.

What I thought was really interesting is when she made the bone soaps that she put the mold in the freezer to prepare it for the hot soap. Then she pour the soap into the mold and let it set up for about 30-40 minutes. Place the tray into the freezer for about 15 minutes. 

Honestly,  this is the first time I have heard of placing the soap mold into the freezer prior to pour the melted soap base into it. I have poured the soap into the mold and placing it into the freezer if the soap is difficult to get out or to have the soap set up alot quicker.  Has anyone tried this technique before?  I will have to give it a try.

I have not put molds in the freezer before pouring but I will try it. LOL I am always willing to try new things. I did love her crystal ball mold. Does anyone know where I can find one? Thanks

I do not know for sure where you can get one. Did you check the resources in the link provided? I am thinking she may have created her own with a silicone compound.
