This 'froth' material is based around the cells pattern which produces a random set of 'feature points'. The second output of this is the distance of the point from the nearest feature point. The greater than function is used to produce a 1 if this is less than 0.3 and 0 otherwise; i.e. those point within a distance of 0.3 result in a 1 and everywhere else is 0, resulting in circles of radius 0.3 around the feature points. These are the 'bubbles' which need to have 0 density so the map is reversed by subtracting it from 1. Now we have zero value for the 'bubbles' and 1 everywhere else and this is fed into the density property. A slight scaling/shifting is also applied to get a better look.


Scattering is set to a maximum of 1 so that light is all scattered.


Transparency is set to 0.01, i.e. almost opaque.


Finally, a uniform pink colour is set as the Emissive Color which gives the froth a basic pink colour.
