GEII silicone caulk?

Posted by shaddy101 (My Page) on

Does this stuff get old?
I am using a tube, doesn't want to set up, and dry? is that what I am wanting to say?
Very tacky after 2 days of sitting, and wanted to do my bb gazing thing, should I take off the few stones I have, wipe off the caulk, and start with fresh from the store?
Seems very wet, and almost greasy-like.
Just wanted to use up the old stuff, and guess it doesn't work that way?
Any assistance would be great.
Also, if and when I do try this project again, is there a simpler way to get the goop out of the tube rather than run it thru the gun?

Sounds like you are using it in a caulking gun. I use the smaller tubs because it will go back and won't set up. I would only use the large caulking type if it were a large project and you are going to use all of it. Otherwise, better to stick with the small tubes.

Yes on GJ forum they talk about it getting old & their plate flowers falling apart!! So needs to be fresh for your projects. Jan

Most tubes have an expiration date on them. Make sure you check it before you buy it.
