I was about to suggest Paste Warp: :) 

 

There is also  @xod's Text on Path. :) 

I couldn't figure out how to install the Text on Path plugin...

Try typing your text on its own layer with transparent background and then using @MJW's Paste Warp+ plugin.

 

I couldn't seem to accomplish what you got with Paste Warp; this is the closest I could get https://imgur.com/a/NBsBrxQ but the distortion filters seemed to do nothing...

This kind of question is best asked on the plugin topic for the benefit of others who may have similar questions.

In any case, this is how I used the plugin to get the result I got. 

- With your graphic as the background layer

- Create a new transparent layer and type your text

- Select your text with the rectangle selection tool (try not to have much space between the selection edges and the text) and COPY the selection, make the text layer invisible

- Click on the background layer, use the Magic Wand (or the Lasso tool or whatever) to select the reddish shape you want your text over

- With the selection still active, create a new transparent layer, make it the active layer and use Paste Warp+. Fiddle with the settings until you get the result you want. If I remember right, in my example above I just moved the Horizontal Distortion slider to zero.

Pretty much exactly what I did. However, for me, the horizontal distortion doesn't change anything which is odd?

This example was created with the TextOnPath plugin:

I don't know if it fits your expectations.

Yes, that is perfect! I just don't know where to put the .dll and .dlc; I tried the Effects folder but I didn't get the Text Formations section in the first place.

You also need OptionBasedLibrary 0.7.9 dll and dlc files in order to see the plugin.

You can download them here:

And put them (only OptionBasedLibrary 0.7.9 dll and dlc) in the paint.net folder not in Effects folder.

 

Oh wow, thanks so much! This is perfect :D
