Wrong silicone on trim, paint won't stick


I think I messed up and used the wrong silicon for trim and windows, paint is just not sticking to it at all.
This is the one that I used GE Silicon I
http://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/ge-silic.../6000193974395

How do I go about fixing this ? I did one coat of paint so far.
Can I buy proper silicon and just run it over ?

Removing it is the ideal fix, but often you can get away with caulking over it. The thing is, a paintable caulk isn't going to bond to the silicone either. If you run a larger bead that can bond to the wood on either side of the existing bead, it can work ok.

Didn't know there was such a thing as the correct silly cone. Even if you remove it it can still cause adhesion problems unless you sand the area really well.

This has an outside chance of working but there's no guarantees. Prime the silicone with an oil-based bonding type primer such as Zinsser's Cover Stain. If you don't feel comfortable with the oil, try the Zinsser's latex 123. These type of primers stick to almost anything, even glass. Silicone is a fickle master, so this has a 50 - 50 chance of working. I've done it several times with success.
