This is my awesome carnage sign(well it was), only thing I don't like is the text. Does anybody know how to make the text look better it looks too plain, I mean I know I have to go to Filters, alpha to logo to add a 3D effect for example but every time I do that the whole sign gets replaced by the text. I've heard it involves layering? I've been searching here and there but still nothing.

Thanks justintheman99 I'm starting to grasp the concept. (although the website was mainly for photoshop but non the less, +rep ;). )
