Cha Brown is darker than Beijing and Ancient Copper, but not as dark as Toffee Brown. Click here to see the Taccia inks together.

Longer writing:

 I used a medium Pelikan M800 Renaissance Brown on Tomoe River 68gsm. The ink had a wet flow.

Overall, it’s a nice wet brown ink. There’s some nice shading and it’s well behaved.
