Caulking II: masking tape for the win!

Oh yeah, masking tape makes things way easier. Ignoring the pleasant light rain, I caulked the left side of the window in about ten minutes, a couple of feet at a time. Since I could get sloppy on the edge, tooling the bead was easy.

When I finished, I carefully stripped away the tape, and there you go -- a pretty decent bead!

So now you know. And so do I.

By the way: remove the masking tape before the caulk sets, even though that seems a little counterintuitive. If you don't, your weird sloppy bead will be there forever (or you'll have to cut it off with a utility knife). The point being, it won't be what you want.
