Firstly, the Sidecar Ceramic Nail is perhaps the next step up after a simple glass nail. Furthermore, featuring better heat diffusing capacities, you don’t have to be quite as sensitive with your torch. When you touch oil to a ceramic nail, you may even realize that you need to let the piece cool slightly to avoid burning your wax.
Next, these nails are theoretically easy to clean. Any residual oil can simply be reheated and flecked off with a pass of the torch. Also, like glass, however, ceramic nails tend to break easily. It’s game over once the nail gets any sort of chip or crack. Residual oil will start to seep in and your once lovely piece will begin to crumble.
