Thanks for all the great compliments! Bill, I got the idea from a book of Jim Zuckerman's called, Outstanding Special Effects Photography on a Limited Budget. The effect I found fascinating wasn't coming together for me because I had none of the supplies or lighting suggested in his book so I had to improvise. He told me in an email the book is out of print. I get mine from the library when I want to read it.
