Yes, the are supposed to be bubbles.  I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong 
yet, but I have noticed that effect.  They are isosurface shells with 
very thin walls.  The material has an ior of 1.33, which is wrong and is 
probably causing the issue.  I guess a soap bubble has an ior pretty 
close to 1, so I'll have to play with that.  I think when I was trying 
to get the irrid right I pushed the ior back up, but got that side-effect.

The balloon isn't quite right either.  It's too glossy so it looks more 
like glass.

I think the cracks need to line up with the cracks in the foundation as 
well.  More things to play with.
