Markers work on black, but with layering!
I've made a few birthday chalkboards with these markers, using them on black foam boards. Some of the markers (including the lighter colors) show up on the first swipes but are still very faint. I had to layer the marker lines multiple times to achieve the vibrant colors I wanted on the black surface I was working with. I wouldn't say these are "easy" to use on a black background; but, as long as you have the time and patience to layer the colors, the final product will turn out good. Only other complaint is that these markers don't seem to last very long. I've had to purchase a brand new pack for each chalkboard I've made. Obviously with layering the colors, it uses up more of the ink, so I'm sure these would work great on white backgrounds. They still work on black backgrounds but with a little more time and effort!

Does not show up on dark
I don't know what the other reviewer used, but I tried these on black construction paper they didn't do anything special. The white came out dark until it dried and then was barely visible as white. Yellow hardly showed as well. The other colors just looked like regular markers on black paper.

Great Chalkboard Effect!
These were a great find! I was able to create a poster on black poster board that had a chalkboard look to it. The markers were easy to use, although the colors don't show up immediately - the ink has to be applied and it takes a few seconds to dry. With the lighter colors, I found that if you went over it twice, it showed up just fine. I recommended these to my group of mom friends!
