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:
Perhaps another way to say it:
semi-transparent : not transparent :: semi-permeable : not permeable
So pick a synonym of impermeable.
