I have acquired some very good tags from Tando, which can withstand lots of medium and get wet without bending.! My gear is in different matrials wood and cardboard they were glued and got 2 times black gesso and when it is completely dry they were painted with white.
I have used Black gesso DecoArt Media.
DecoArt media Fluid Acrylics: Translucent White, Yellow Oxide, Qninacridone Gold
DecoArt Antiquing Cream and Patina Green
Americana DecoArt Matte Decou-page

I wish you a great day. Hugs, Susan
