What would you recommend to give one side of a clear sheet like
lucite or plexi a "frosted" appearance?

Could you use paper instead?
Yeah, something translucent like rice paper.

Normally this is done with sandblasting.

There is an 'etching paste' used by folks working with stain glass and
monogramming (drinking) glasses. It is a less harsh alternative to
sandblasting. Check your local craft supply store.

Have you got a scrap of lucite to try this out: what about just rubbing
the surface over with very fine grade emery paper?

The instructions on an aerosol can of spray-on adhesive claim that,
besides its use as an adhesive, a light coat of the spray will produce
a frosted surface effect on glass.
