Thick smoke Technique - Billowy Smoke

I am trying to find realistic smoke techniques. I am looking for thick billowy smoke rather than cigarette or candle smoke. If anyone knows any tricks please let me know. The objective is to make a room look like it is smoking with clouds of smoke wrapping around the outer windows. Any help would be great. Thank you.

garrettpriddy, welcome to RetouchPRO! Nice to have you aboard. Poke around, ask questions, have fun! Hope you enjoy your visits here.

Yeppers, smoke brushes work great... Thanks Palms I did not have those.

Or you could try combining different mats.
