Elaborating a little on Martin Kraus' solution, since JWolf97 azked for
a "bubbly"
looking W, here is an idea:

graf=ParametricPlot[{-Cos[t],Cos[4t]},{t,0,2Pi},DisplayFunction->Identity];

circ=Table[Circle[{-Cos[t],Cos[4t]},.1],{t,0,2Pi,Pi/100}];
Show[graf,Graphics[{RGBColor[0.996109, 0,
0],circ}],AspectRatio->Automatic,
  DisplayFunction->$DisplayFunction];

Cheers!
