Your the man!  Thats way out of my league! The use of magnets... would have never thought of that!

Thanks for the detailed explanation of the technique.  Again, well done!

The texture on the oval insert & lettering is created by using sanded Dry-lok. I simply mix a small amount of clean, dry, construction sand into the Dry-lok and 'pounce' the paint on using an old brush to create a textured surface. I will do two or three light coats that way, allowing an hour or so of dry time in between. Then I lightly sand the top of the letters to return them to a slightly more flattened surface. That is followed by coats of flat black, brown, and bronze spray paints as base colors, a couple light coats of spray poly, and whatever decorative top coats are needed to finish the look. In this case it was just a light finger-dabbing of metallic bronze paint on the letters & scroll decorations. Also, there are 3 small neodymium magnets embedded into the back surface of the wood oval using a strong 2-part epoxy. This allows me to swap out the sign content very(!) quickly.

Nice!  I may have to add one of these to the entrance of the cemetery!  Love the hammered look.

This is our 'No Costume ~ No Candy' sign, a new bit of haunt dressing for 2013.
