Oil Rainbow Sheen using 2D Fluid Simulation

Hi guys! I'm new here so please let me know if I've accidentally broken any rules.

I'm a novice animator who's trying to pick up fluid simulation for the first time. So far I've only ever created motion graphics in After Effects, but for one of my current animations I'm planning to attempt to create an effect similar to this using only 2D fluid simulation in Maya. I've been experimenting, but so far I haven't been able to recreate anything close.

Is an effect like this even possible using Maya, or should I try a different program? And if it is possible, how?

Perhaps the soap bubble scene available in this blog post can help:

There is a little explanation of it in the videos and the scene files can be downloaded at the bottom of the post.

That's exactly what I was looking for, thank you so much!

The rest of the talk is genius too, it's given me a heap of new ideas to experiment with. Brilliant!
