The Son of Horus You could give Water Effects a try. Liquid resin is pretty ubiquitous for these sort of things. Also, applying gloss varnish to the areas that are supposed to look wet works quite well.

Finally, if you've got a heat gun handy, melting a couple spare flying base stems and drizzling them from the mouth after you've finished painting the piece will work.

White/craft/wood glue SHOULD dry translucent- Hence why you add the hint of green to it.

Baron Spikey PVA/Wood glue (which I presume is White Glue) dries clear and shiny so you could use that.

Earthbeard Hot glue gun can get that effect, mix in some inks/food colouring etc. Takes a fair amount of practice to get the hang of though, so test on sprues/junk models first of all.

Slime effects

In the 4th edition tyranid codex one of the carnifexs had slime coating on his tongue and teeth, does anyone know how to emulate that so I can apply it to my death guard army?
