I only get bright dots on my objects with SSS on... any one else have the same problem?
A: Ok, here goes. Your basic wax teapot in VRay advanced.
Set up the scene (plane, teapot, optional camera). Add an omni light, turn on shadow casting and give it a VRay shadow.
In the render scene window make sure GI is on.
Create the following VRay material for your teapot:
And you should get this:
If you want more contol over the scattering you can add a control map in the refract slot. Also, play with the light multiplier value to increase the effect. If the SSS is grainy, increase the number of refract samples.

Comment: Decided to make some "elipsoid grapes". Bad models I know, but the attention was on the SSS.
Comment: I tested your scene and it worked great, Thanks ! The thing i missed was the Gi part , i mixed it up with finalrender..... you don't need gi to get SSS there.
