Silliconing advise

Post by James11 » Wed May 15, 2019 1:01 pm

Finally finished tilling my bathroom thank God haha, to say I learned the hard way would be an understatement!

Anyway I'm at the point of silliconing around the bath, in the corners of the room and where the tiles meet the ceiling.

I'm going with white around the bath and ceiling and a colour match with the grout down the corners of the room.

My question is how do I go about doing this is regards to the two silicone meeting at the corners of the bath?

Do I do the bath/ceiling first then when dry do the corners? I was under the understanding that silicones don't bond together so how do I get it water tight and looking good?

Do the bath edge first, let it dry and then do the wall to ceiling joint. It will stick together just fine. Don't use soapy water to smooth it out though otherwise it will stop it bonding. Use a fugi type tool to tidy it all up.
