Hi every one,
I'm not sure there still any-one on this community following up since there seams not to be to much activity lately.
I wanted just to let you know we have organized a menstrual art contest in Mexico. Since this is the first time we have done it and since we had no idea how much participation we where going to get; this first time the contest is just for mexican or foreigners living in Mexico.
If all goes well we will try to organize some thing that could be world wide.
Mean while if any of you would like to share you paintings as an inspiration for the new participant or just to let other see them. Please let us know by email us to info at artemenstrual dot org.
Why a contest you might ask. Well it was though as a way to create an incentive for more women or men to try.
So if any of you that had already painted with menstrual blood, would like to help voting, please let us know to.

I wise all awesome times ahead.
Hi everyone! I'm new to the idea of menstrala, but think it would be a fun and interesting project. I've been becoming a whole lot more spiritual and in touch with my body lately, and reading some of the awesome posts on this blog has really shown me that this could be a really awesome thing for me to do!
So I have a few questions, as I want to make sure I'm doing things the right away (and avoiding any safety/health issues). How do you store your blood until you use it? Does it need to be refrigerated, or just kept in a jar? How long can you keep it before you should throw it out? Do you do anything to seal the pictures after you're done painting? Are there any other weird logistics/tips for doing menstrala?
Thanks so much for your help ladies. I can't wait to get started - which should be next weekend!
It's my second month using a menstrual cup (diva cup) And I'm absolutely LOVING it. Menstrala is such powerful art form, It truly speaks to me. I am 14, and am proud of my period. Most people my age are embarrassed and would do ANYTHING to not have a period. I think of my period as a gift. I embrace my womanhood. I started doing menstrala last month, my first month using my menstrual cup. I've told alot of my close friends about menstrual cups and menstrual art, most think that menstrual art revolting, but I accept that they aren't comfortable with their menstrual cycle. I embrace mine. A few of my friends are actually looking into getting a menstrual cup. I am proud that at this age, I am inspiring teens to embrace their menstruation.
