Best piece of advice for layering is to thin your paints. You want a near transparent paint and put on multiple layers to build a nice slow transition in color. Also the more color varients you use the smoother the color change will be. For example instead of going from a dark blue to a bright blue you would start with dark blue, then mix dark blue with medium blue, then straigth medium blue, followed by medium blue and light blue, then light blue, and finally white mixed in with white blue.
Now this example is a bit extreme but illustrates how you can blend several layers of color to create a smooth trasition from dark to light.

Your early attempts will look like bands of colour but that's pretty much it. You will get better at smoothing out those bands as you go along.

Wet Blending is a pain but it looks good. I've done some basic blending on horns with black and bleach bone, thats about it but they look good. Smaller the surface the hard don't forget.
