Simple decal or layered shader?

Trying to create a decal effect similar to using a layered shader in Maya and having difficulties. The effect I'm looking for is a paper label (distressed, old) on a shiny bottle. So need, essentially, two different surface qualities on the same object. Any suggestions or related tutorials would be much appreciated. Using a Maya's Layered Shader doesn't seem to be working with the AiStandardSurface shader...

Thanks,

Jay

Perhaps the Mix shader does what you're looking for? https://support.solidangle.com/display/A5AFMUG/Mix+Shader

I think you’re right Ben... tried the AiMix just after posting and am finally getting something close to what I’m looking for. Having some odd behavior when I turn off texture tiling (image turns into a black hole) but I’m sure I’ll get that straightened out. Thanks for the suggestion!

There is also the Coat on the Standard Surface shader which can be used to layer a texture on top. Although the Mix shader is probably just as easy.
