    You are an idiot. If you were a professional painter, you should know better than to caulk an unprimed substrate. Never, Never, caulk raw wood ; it will not hold up.

    what do you use on your fingers to protect them? I'm about half way through our home, but my fingers can't take much more!

    Hey bro, I've been watching your videos for a couple years and helped me a lot when I was new. I always use T-shirt rags on my corners if I caulk too heavy, defiantly be buying a tile sponge.

    The sponge is a great idea. I'll have to try that. I just did a door and what you did in a few seconds took me about 15 minutes. lol But it did turn out nice.

    Thank you for the how to handle the corners part. Usually instructions skip over that part leaving people wondering "okay the straight line part was easy but now what do I do about the tight small corner?"

    OMG Thank you soooo much. I have been trying to caulk windows, base boards, and around new doors…with major mess and waste. I watched many videos but they showed poor quality work or using tape….seriously?! The very next day after watching your video I am caulking like a pro. Thank you thank you thank you

    If i caulk and it cracks a year later, what causes that? Is 30 min dry caulk good stuff?

    Chris, does that chalk dry clear? Do u always use clear?  If your molding is bare wood, to you prime first, then caulk, then paint? Or caulk, prime, then paint?  Thanks.

    Not bad! We do very little residential painting but nevertheless we always prime the woodwork first to seal it before we caulk and fill nails. We've always had better luck with adhesion. There's always more than one way to do something though. Take care!

    Great video, straight to the point, not like those TV people filling air with noncence. Good thing that glove tore, it give the effect to see better and follow the strokes. I thought you did it purposely.
