Caulk That Dries Bright White?

Postby jacks » Wed Nov 21, 2018 7:38 pm

All the “white” caulk I’ve ever used has always dried off-white, or possibly even very slightly transparent. Is there a brand or alternative product that dries to a bright white/fully opaque finish?

I want to fill gaps between a window frame (that I painted) and some white internal shutters (that came fully finished), so need a caulk that doesn’t then need painting over to look good.

Basically something like the silicone sealant you’d use in a bathroom, but with a matt or satin finish.

I have yet to come across a caulk that dries white as caulk is made to be painted over, maybe could use a acrylic sealant that dries white or last option white silicone mastic
