simple caulking question


would you guys silicone around this?

I want to but I have a feeling it's going to be such a thin bead that it will fail. let me know if it makes sense to go out and buy the silicone for this...

It needed to be caulked or Plumbers puddy under the lip of the sink before it went in not after.
It's going to do 0 good to just try and caulk around the outside lip of it now.

I very seldom use 100% silicon caulk. I like Dap latex kitchen/bath caulk. Apply a bead on the top before setting the sink. Then a bead after sink is anchored. Use your wet finger to push it into the voids at the edge. Dap is water based so it cleans up real well. Just don't apply it on a wet surface

Ok thanks...I will apply some.

I was just concerned that it was such a small bead that it may just come undone
