I just created a lava field texture out of stacked layers of fractal cloud color mixes (dark orange, light orange), fractal cloud transparency (dark yellow, 100% transparency), then a chopped up stone texture with flat bevel applied sitting on top. Grouped together and exported as a repeating JPG image... enjoy! All done in Xara Designer Pro 9 - my preferred vector drawing application.
