If you have ever tried to caulk, you have probably discovered that what appears to be easy, isn’t.  Even when you carefully apply a bead of caulk it always seems like there is either too much or not enough.

With a little effort you can have a perfect caulk line:

  • Use painter’s tape to mask your area.
  • Apply a small bead of caulk.
  • Smooth the caulk using an appropriate device.  I like using my finger.
  • Remove the painter’s tape while the caulk is still pliable.
  • Done!

Placing the blue painter’s tape.

Ready to go!

A finger as a tool!
