    TRANSLUCENT IS TO OPAQUE AS POROUS IS to sequential

    Translucent means it lets light through (though not in a clear image).

    Opaque means it lets NO light through.

    Porous means able to let water or air through (but not necessarily everything).

    So you want a word meaning that it won't let any water or air through. Perhaps something like:

    impermeable

    impervious,

    impenetrable

    impregnable

    sealed

    Perhaps another way to say it:

    semi-transparent : not transparent :: semi-permeable : not permeable

    So pick a synonym of impermeable.
