Mushi (which also means "Bug" in Japanese) are a third category of life, separate from plants and animals. Invisible to the eye, they are responsible for what many people perceive as supernatural phenomena, at least, according to the manga & anime Mushi-Shi.

    One thing I think I did differently from Blue was that I used ice water to cool the slide just to see what would happen. I got some cracking and small areas of buckling that look like water on the film. Thanks guys!

    The ice water effect is killer Jim, very nice. I was going to say that it looks like 3 jelly fish swimming amongst the bubbles, but with the ice effect it looks almost like they're smashed between a glass with water drops sitting on top. Okay I might be rambling cause I see so much here. At any rate, very otherworldly!! MORE PLEASE ;)...thanks for the dedication, I'm honored!
