Apply alex plus latex caulk plus silicone TWICE


Sooooo I messed up.

I put up my baseboards and trim and bought a caulking gun tube of alex plus latex caulk plus silicone. I bought transparent by accident!

It was opened and it was late so I decided to just go ahead and finish. So now it's making painting very difficult and unforgiving.

Could I go over the transparent caulk with alex plus latex caulk plus silicone WHITE?

My only concern is the silicone in the title because I know silicone wont stick to silicone.

Thanks!!

You're OK- It is "Silonconized", but you will see that it does say paintable. If you are going to paint over it anyway, no need to add the white- but no problem if you do.
The Evil stuff is 100% silicone.

oh thank God. This means that I can make clean caulk lines and the seams will be a bit more forgiving when painting.

I thought this stuff would be evil as well...thank God it's not...
