Practice first on some scrap or in inconspicuous areas. Or use clear caulk

Life's too short...so enjoy it!

After old caulk removed - too big a gap for clear caulk. . . in my opinion.

How big of gap?

What type of caulk?

You want a polyurethane based caulk if it’s going against brick.

If the gap is too large, installing a small moulding may solve most of your problems.

Stucco tape and caulk will give you the finest lines.
