I would think you would need to mold whatever you wanted the construct to be, then cast it in clear resin with the color dye per lantern type.

Yep. You can get them online of Hobby Lobby. They'll have dyes you can add in the same location with the resins. Green would look like the guy on the left: Image

The thicker it is the more opaque it will become.

To get started in casting, yes. Its a lot to start from nothing. After you have some good molds that you will use over and over...the cost becomes more manageable.
