NP, Doug. Was playing with this around 2 months ago. Unfortunately, only kept a few examples. Really sucks because I had some good looking fire and other things.

Attached is a variation using Clouds and High Pass.
Can't remember all the tricks I used for this one, though.

Uh-oh. Lights are flickering due to winter weather.
Gotta go and batten down the hatches.

I have no freaking idea what all I did for this one. But I do know it started with USM set to a very high setting. Gave an interesting granular look. Then I think I used emboss and some other stuff (but no artistic filters). Seamless.

Stroker: a good green marble was one of the things I was looking for when I first started this.

Oh, Doug, I'm not sure. I did one layer of clouds, one of diff. clouds. Then fibers, copied, transformed 90°, glowing edges or find edges>overlay, anisotropic. That's all I remember and I'm not sure that's the order.
Good luck!
kiska

Oh,oh! I just remembered. I used this pattern before fibers, I think. The pattern is what I transformed sideways.
