I'm looking to create a spherical bubble of sorts that will be illuminated by a colored LED inside of it. To do this, I'm hoping to use either the fine detail or frosted detail plastic materials in transparent detail finish, but I'm unsure about what thicknesses to go for.

The overall look I would like to achieve is that of milky white dome which isn't see-through, but which glows fairly brightly when the light inside is on. Any insight on which of these to materials and in what thickness would best suit this look?

Thanks!
