Yes, a metal rod/armature would be important for horns. Milliput is a two part clay that hardens when mixed within 4 hours and is really rock hard. This can then be filed, sanded, drilled, molded and/or painted.

No progress on the Trike yet.
Milliput gives you about 1 hour working time, and is constantly hardening once mixed. You need to work fast on smaller less complex parts, but as it hardens, it can be good for sculpting fine details. Use with water to smooth.
Milliput would not be suitable for creating full body dinosaurs. If you want a clay that goes hard, try Supersculpy. This gives you many hours of working time and can be baked later in the oven to harden fully. Then it can be painted. It has a kinda bubblegum consistancy. There're some available at stores such as www.tiranti.co.uk
