2) Use your caulk gun to fill in the outline that you have drawn with caulk.  You don't have to be too precise with this step.

4) Allow your caulk to dry.  The DAP Alex Plus caulk is awesome and is paintable in 30 minutes :) Then, you are ready to paint it!  I used two different color greens for the tree part and gold metallic paint for the tree trunk.

    I am new to your site. It’s fantastic. I am a wanna be designer trapped in a business director’s body. Thanks for all the inspiration. I can’t wait to dive into the caulk.
