Alright, let's break this down. You have photoshop and you want to make textures. Photoshop is an amazing prgram. Play around alot. Layer are different parts of an image you can make. They go on top of eachother. If a layer is beneath an other layer then in the picture its is aboce also. Layers are transparent as well. You say you want to make yexture, but I don't understand clearly what you need help for. Is it photoshop or you 3d program. Could you be more specific. Photoshop tutorials (http://www.good-tutorials.com) Lots of very good photoshop tutorials.

Well i am not a texture pro but i think i can help you on your way.
I asume you have unwrapped the thing.
at the moment i don't have PS available. :(
let's make a realy basic texture.
Make a selection of the unwrapped horn in PS.
Add a layer name it "base paint"
paintbucket in a color.
go to filter->noise->add noise (make it monochromatic)
go to filter->noise->despeckle
now you can take the burn and dodge tool to make some shadows on it to make the horn look less round.
Add a new layer name it "dirt"
Take your brush and choose dry brush tip light flow (it's one of the brushes in the list looks round and noisy) or an other, for each job you have several brushes you can use.
now take a mutch whiter color then the base color and put a bit on it.
Go to the little F at the layer window. Blending options and just look what you can do there, it's amazing. probably if you have done this a view idea's burst out of your head :D.
Now you can try blur the base layer some more if it looks to "rough". And gausian blur the dirt layer to blend it more in with with the base.
Put on as mutch layers as you like/need.
well... a simple texture is made, just practise and try all those filters and blending options and understand what they do. And alway try to have some referense.
