When doing the lava base, you might try going with a "brighter" red closer to the bubbles, fading into orange and then bright yellow at the top. Lava when it gets to it's thinnest point is a bright yellow. The thicker the lava the darker red it will get. That's a fun effect, I wonder how hard it would be to sculptone of them popping...
The best picture I have to show you this is a photograph taken of a lava flow. The link to the picture https://a1000wor.acc...lava bubble.jpg (didn't want to directly link image since not sure on that website's policies regarding such). The main directory of photos I found it in is here https://a1000wor.acc...fc20c720818df76)
I'm a geologist by trade, figured this is one of few things I can comfortably critique ;)

So, is lava as a general rule the opposite of fire in that the hotter it is, the darker it becomes in color? Whereas flame is usually lighter at its hottest point. Or is that too much of a generalization and I should find a reference pic whenever possible? lol!

Found this on usgs.gov website. If you want to nerd it up and see how hot lava is at certain colors.
By way of its color, incandescent rock gives a crude estimate of temperature. For example, orange-to-yellow colors are emitted when rocks (or melt) are hotter than about 900 degrees Celsius (1,650 degrees Fahrenheit). Dark-to-bright cherry red is characteristic as material cools to 630 degrees Celsius (1,165 degrees Fahrenheit). Faint red glow persists down to about 480 degrees Celsius (895 degrees Fahrenheit). For comparison, a pizza oven is operated at temperatures ranging from 260 to 315 degrees Celsius (500 to 600 degrees Fahrenheit). -- USGS/HVO Volcano Watch, November 14, 1997
