Take a look at cc mr mercury or cc glue gun applied to a chocolate brown layer. Also a drippy mask with cc glass may start getting close. You may need to apply cc glass as an adjustment layer, I'm not sure it sees the mask as a layer's alpha if a

I'm not making accusations, mind you, but it sounds suspiciously like you may have procured a copy of AE from a not-entirely-trustworthy source. I got mine straight from Adobe -- no friend-of-a-friend or anything like that, I know its provenance -

You may want to look into using CC Mr. Mercury too. Depending on what you mean by "bubbling". If you mask something in a precomp, it will probably work more like you want it to. Although, with Foam you can control where the bubbles go with flow map
