ive had luck with inbedding ball bearings or beads into green stuff for "newly formed" bubbles, or imbedding then removing for the "freshly popped" bubble. i hope that helps

Nail polish and water is a great way to make lava bases.

Glass of water or bowl few drops of the lava colors: Orange, Yellow, Red...

It pools on top of the water and then you dip the base in with tweezers and then pull it out and the film on the top of the water sticks and drys on the base in a realistic blend you can't make with a brush or spray its natral looking.

The you get some cord board and break it up to make the rocks prime them first and glue them to the base making the lava be on the bottom and the rocks above.

Add in some light effect on the rocks from the lava under
