I'm not sure what you mean by "the scum effects", but I hand-drawn the waves with a brush from Photoshop's default dry media set and erased it into shape. The scattered white foams are just two different layers hand-dabbled 1 pixel dots, both with a bit of Gaussian blur on it, and one of the layers set to about 50% opacity.
