    Like this?

    bevel/emboss/down
    play with contour to get textured edges
    duplicate "s" set layer property to "multiply"
    color dodge to make smoke or airbrush your smoke

    That looks awesome.
    I'm always astounded what can be done with photoshop if you know how to work it.

    didn't have time last night, but the right way to do smoke is this:

    load an appropriate brush and draw a shape
    then use the smudge tool
