What can I do to make a solid colored paint more transparent?

I don't think there is a way. Are you painting one of those toothpick beam sabers?

I had been in the habit of painting them with a custom mix of pink or green (whatever color it's supposed to be) usually I'll paint it a little darker at the base by the handle, make it lighter in the middle, and then darker at the tip. Hope that helps... unless you're not painting beam sabers :-P.

I'm not, but it's good to know.
