caulk for molding and millworkDAP Alex Plus Painter’s Caulk

The caulk I use more than any other to fill the small gaps on and around my molding installations is regular ol’ DAP painter’s caulk.

I use it on everything from crown moldings to wainscoting.

I like to sculpt and shape the caulk under most circumstances, so I want it to hold its shape when dry (at least as much as caulk allows for shaping).

The more expensive elastomeric caulks don’t hold their shape when cured (shrinkage!), so I rarely use them any longer.
