Maybe it is a liquid metal foam after all, and would shrink greatly as the
incandescent gas inside the bubbles cools off.
With burning magnesium or aluminum or sodium on water, I think the heat
will crack the H-O bond, then the metal reacts violently with single-atom
oxygen and releases H2 gas. Hydrogen disolves in many metals, but
"burning" with oxygen dominates.
