I Want to make this lamp with a point light inside it and have it shine through the appropriate faces. So far I've put the point light inside and made the faces transparent via the shading nodes in the pic below however the light isn't shining through anyone know how I can achieve this?


Thanks!

Translucent - leafs and paper-like materials

If the light source is important for rest scene lightning, it is usually a good idea (for performance reasons) to remove this material for all light rays except camera one:
