Rated 1 out of 5?by geekmom Does NOT work on black paper
I bought 4 sets of these for my nieces' stockings at Christmas along with some black paper pads. The ink just looked like wet spots on the black paper and was almost invisible when it dried. Very disappointing!

We used this at VBS on garden pots and the color was amazing. They are hard to find but the best markers I've ever used

Rated 3 out of 5?by Tanya 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!

Rated 2 out of 5?by TxBrandi 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.
