I have just put us some crown molding, and have a couple of gaps I'd
like to fill. I've read some postings that suggest using Acrylic Caulk
rather than putty to fill the gaps.
Does Caulk come in any kind of packaging other than what you use in a
caulk gun? ie: in any kind of little tub that you can scoop it out of?
Or do I just need to improvise, and squirt the caulk into the gaps with
the gun? (I've always thought of a caulk gun as being used to lay
Yes, it does. Look for DAP 5.5 fluid ounce tubes. I have a tube of DAP
Alex Plus in my hand right now. Acrylic Latex Caulk with Silicone. 35
year durability. Indoor/outdoor, paintable, flexible, highly durable,
cured caulk is mildew resistant, and water clean up. I might have gotten
it in HD or Lowes.
In addition to DAP, Poly Seam Seal comes in a "tooth paste" style tube
as well. A very good product. BTW you really don't save all that much
buying the tube over the caulk cartridge. An experienced hand with a
gun can do just about everything tube can do
