Warren Watches

Thank you to everyone who joined the weekly screening of Gentefied. In honor of Asian Pacific Islander American Heritage Month, you get to decide our next film to watch for our Warren Watches Stream in May! Our two film options are The Half of It and Always Be My Maybe!

Warren-Watches---poll.png

The Half of It is directed by Asian American filmmaker Alice Wu and is centered around a shy, introverted student who helps the school jock woo a girl whom, secretly, they both want.

Always Be My Maybe is directed by Nahnatchka Khan and stars Asian American comedians Ali Wong and Randall Park. The story is centered around childhood sweethearts who have a falling out and don't speak for 15 years, only reconnecting as adults when Sasha runs into Marcus in San Francisco. Although the old sparks are still there, the couple live in different worlds.

Warren Wednesday Crafts - Instagram Livestream

Join Student Affairs Intern, Kathleen, on Wednesdays at 12:00 pm for a quick crafting break. One audience member on our Instagram @UCSDWarren will receive an Amazon gift card!   

We will post the supplies for the craft break before every episode and we hope you will craft along with us.

Week 2 : Oatmeal Soap Bars

Supplies needed:
Instructions
  •  Lightly coat the soap mold with rubbing alcohol, this helps eliminate air bubbles that will naturally form.
  •  In your measuring cup or bowl, microwave the cubed soap base, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted. (This should take about one minute and 30 seconds.)
  •  As soon as it is melted, add 15-20 drops of essential oil, ground oats and honey.. Whisk to combine, but do not whisk too hard or it will introduce extra air bubbles.
  •  Immediately pour the mixture into the molds. You must work quickly or the mixture will begin to harden.
  •  Immediately spray the tops of each mold with rubbing alcohol to disperse any air bubbles. Sprinkle rolled oats on top of soap and then leave the mold alone for at least 20 minutes to set before moving it.
  •  Cover and transfer to the freezer for 2 hours for a quick finish, or you can allow it to sit out overnight.
  •  Remove soaps from mold and enjoy!

 


Week 4 : Water Color art and Bleach Tie Dye


Watercolor shortcuts
Supplies needed:

  • Crayola washable markers
  • Spray bottle
  • Pigma Micron marker

Instructions:

  • Draw any design (a drawing, calligraphy, etc) on watercolor paper with a Pigma marker (it has waterproof ink)
  • With the crayola markers, spread the marker ink wherever desired on a ziplock bag
  • Spray the ink with water
  • Turn the ziplock bag around and press it onto the watercolor paper
  • Blend the ink
  • Lift the bag to leave a watercolor wash on top of the paper

Bleach Tie Dye
Supplies needed:

  • Bleach or Food Coloring or Rit Dye
  • Spray bottle
  • Rubber bands
  • Old Clothes

Instructions: 

  • Fill Spray bottle with bleach or Food Coloring or Rit Dye
  • Soak clothing in cold water then bunch clothing into a circle or randomly using rubber bands
  • Spray or squeeze bleach/food coloring/dye in various areas. *Note the bleach effect will only work on dark-colored clothing
  • Let clothing sit overnight for the dye to soak in then its ready to rinse and wear! 

 


Week 6 : Tinted Mason Jars and Jewelry Dishes

Tinted Mason Jar
Supplies needed:

  • Mason jars
  • Glue
  • Food coloring
  • Ramekins
  • Newspaper
  • Cookie sheet
  • Pan

Instructions:

  • Mix food coloring with a tablespoon or so of water into individual ramekins. You can create any color combination you like.
  • Add a couple of tablespoons of Mod Podge into your mason jar.
  • Add one ramekin of color into the jar and stir it to incorporate it all together
  • With a bowl underneath, carefully twist the jar around, coating the whole inside with the Mod Podge/food coloring mixture. Pour the excess out into a bowl.
  • Let your jar dry upside down on the paper for about 30 minutes.
  • Set your oven to “warm.” Place the jars face-down on top of wax paper and a cookie sheet into the warm oven for 10 minutes. Then, flip them over and let them dry another 20-30 minutes.

 

Jewelry Dish
Supplies needed:

  •  Whiteblack, and colored oven bake clay (a few ounces of colored clay and the 1.75 pound white clay will make several dishes!)
  • X-Acto knife or plastic clay knife
  • small bowl or baking ramekin that is oven safe
  • gold liquid gilding 
  • small paintbrush
  • rolling pin or large round jar
  • large can or jar to trace around
  • glaze to seal dish (optional)

Instructions:

  • Roll each color of clay that you want to use into a snake about 5″ long.
  • Combine the smaller rolls into one big roll and twist together.
  • Roll the large twist into a snake about twice the original length to combine the colors. Twist the ends opposite ways after every few motions to give the colors more of a candy cane look. Once it’s twice the length, fold the snake in half and twist the two ends together, as pictured above. Repeat the rolling, folding, twisting, and rolling again process 2-3 times.
  • Smoosh all the clay into a ball. You want to see most of your colors on the surface of the ball.
  • Use a rolling pin or glass jar to roll out your marbled ball. I like to use a glass jar so I can see what is happening as I roll harder or softer over certain colors. The colors should blend together and create a marbled pattern as you roll over it.
  • Use a round item about 6″ wide as a template and cut out your dish circle with an X-Acto or clay knife.
  • Place your circle gently into an oven-safe bowl or ramekin that is a little smaller than your circle so it will sag a little in the center and give you more of a dish shape. Bake the bowl according to the temperature on the clay package (mine was 15 minutes at 275°F). Remove the bowl from the oven and allow the clay to cool before turning the larger bowl upside down and tapping lightly until the clay dish falls out.
  • Once the clay is completely cool, use a small brush to paint the rim of the dish and allow the paint to dry. Seal the dish with a glaze if you desire. The glaze won’t make the item food safe or totally waterproof, but it will give you a glossy finish if that’s what you’re into.
