Is there a matte finish caulk


First time caulking. I had caulk a batten and board project. The caulk appeared shiny after painting it white. I don't like the shiny look. Is there a matte finish caulk? If so, does the shiny caulk need o be remove before applying the matte caulk or can it be applied right in top of the shiny caulk?

It sounds like the 'texture' or lack of with the caulk is the issue. How wide of a bead did you apply? another coat of paint will help a little.

You can buy sanded caulk for tile. That wouldn't be shiny.
