I am trying to render a kitchen that has a few pendant lights over the island but every time I do the lampshade, that is supposed to be frosted glass and translucent is coming out metallic and opaque. I have gone through the settings a couple of times and make adjustments to things that I think should change it but I am not getting the wanted result. I have attached a copy of the render output and an example of the pendant lights I am trying to emulate.
