I am working on a contract and have hit a road bump. I need to develop a render of a table that has a top made of semi transparent resin (see photo of actual real world material attached).

I am happy to pay a $50 bounty (paypal or I can send you a check or money order) to the first person to come up with the solution for me. I need to solve this problem today.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated, as I have tried every thing I can think of to match this look.

Material details:
Semi transparent resin
One side (side facing away from camera in the case of this sample image) is painted opaque black. I also have to render this in a version that has the painted side in green, so the color of the opaque side must be editable. The green color value is Green RGB 63 59 1 - HEX 3F3B01.

I am using LW 10.1 so the solution must be compatible with that version.

If anyone can come up with a good solution in the next 2 hours, I'll pay $100.

How did you set the pink color on the material?

Will test this as soon as my current render finishes. That looks like it might well do the trick!

Its 2 surfaces... the rear wall is a different surface, coloured red (and double sided, while the other walls are using the material.

Thank you! this really saves my @$$! Here's a render of the applied material with a few tweaks to color and such.
