Which surfaces can I use Chalkola Chalk Markers on?
Chalkola Chalk Markers
work great on any non-porous surface
, such as whiteboards, glass, non-porous chalkboards, metals, ceramics, plastics, and vinyl. On porous surfaces, such as concrete, paper, wood, and painted surfaces, the markers will still work, but will not be wiped off.
Are the colors vibrant enough to show up on a dark surface or black poster board?
Yes. All the chalk markers are highly pigmented and will show clearly and colorfully on darker surfaces. Although the black chalk markers may not show on black poster board, they can be used for detailing or layering on top of any other color.
Do the colors fade over time, especially when exposed under the sun or light rain?
No, the chalk pens’ colors will not fade as they are UV- and weather-resistant, especially when used on paper, canvas, or other porous surfaces. If you want your artwork to stay on a porous surface permanently, avoid using ammonia-based cleaners.
