I have gaps ranging from 0" to 5/8" along one 8' run of kitchen counter-top - some, obviously, too big to fill with caulk.
Any suggestions on other filler/trim to install before finally caulking?
Counter-top is Formica.
Hi You may want to try quarter round moulding.

How about doing the install correctly from the beginning and scribing the counter to fit the wall?
5/8" is pretty big but what I have done takes a bit of finesse; With a 6" taping knife partially fill the gap with compound and taper out, build that up a couple times then use a wider knife and keep tapering out. If you taper out far enough(10" or 12") the gap will be closed and the taper should be barely visible. Then paint and caulk.
No can do on the "doing it correctly from the beginning" thing, unless there's a time machine that will transport me back 36 years.
I think the compounding solution is a little beyond my expertise, but thanks nonetheless.
I think the quarter round suggestion is more my speed. I may even cut it down to as small a piece that will work, attach it with some adhesive, then caulk and paint.
Try a backsplash with a top trim scribed to the wall (like a 1" thick bullnose shelf that projects about 1/2").
