Water effects and / or clear resin poured over a colored base. Plenty of vids on YT for this kinda thing :)

I've only done something like this once - I did a black base coat with a thin layer of PVA over the top. Then added some dark green to the edges with another layer of PVA. Did slightly lighter layers of green at the edges with a PVA coat as well. All in all, about 5 or 6 layers, looks like deep dark black water.

Toxic goo can be done with adding of more green and even yellow.

You mean this? It's paint with vejello water effect stuff, I've seen better slime effects though.

Never tried it but I think resin is your best bet if you want it thick / deep you can pour thicker coats.

Ps I think the green slime one is Dark green paint, followed by PVA mixed with a lighter green for the raised sections then painted with a water effect product or gloss.

I don't have personal experience, but you could look into specialist paints. GW have some technical ones, like Nurgle's Rot or Blood For the Blood God, which are supposed to look wet. Tamiya also have a range of 'clear' paints - I know lots of people use clear red for blood effects, but maybe a clear green/yellow would be helpful for slime pools.

For water I had some good results with clear Windowcolor. You can pour it over a painted surface (mine was gloss varnished before) with quite some control by dint of a convenient nozzle and you can paint inbetween layers. Flock or reed can be stuck to it for additional 3D effects. I also added cotton as current. If you let it dry a bit, you will be able to create texture with a toothpick for example. You can pour it on some plastic wrap in stripes, remove the stream when dry and attach it as a waterfall using some Windowcolor as glue. Now, you can possibly add paint for your desired toxic effects or just go for some color from the range they have. There's even a glow in the dark one. If you buy the bigger bottle after comparing prices it is a bargain really. I was suprised how much was left after I finished my first test terrain. It will shrink a little however and it will dry better in thinner coats. You can pour it thick but it will stay frosted for quite a while. I could work around that a little by putting it directly under my desk lamp.

My only forray into the world of slime is doing slime for beasts/critters (dripping out of their mouths).

I use clear glue (UHU all purpose) mixed with an ink/wash of a suitable colour. The mix becomes very sticky very quickly so it's important you work fast. Mix and apply with a wooden straw. When applied it can be stretched for real slime effects...

This technique could work well for toxic slime dripping/oozing out of pipes and such I reccon
