molds and re-doing

So, I tried my first batch of soap a year ago--I suspect I was not patient enough and it had not yet saponified when I poured it into the crappy 'mold' I'd slapped together from scraps in our basement.

It obviously sucked and leaked =\ Also the soap is not in the least healthy looking, so I was planning on making a new mold eventually, and then remelt it and be more patient this time in waiting for it to saponify...

Is it easy to remelt it, is my first question--do I just put it back in the pot and very slowly and carefully heat it up?

Secondly, how would yous recommend making the mold? Do you have any useful tips or plans?
