2. Caulk the edge of the Tape

When doing an accent wall you always want to use clear caulking incase the caulking bleeds through the tape. Take your caulking gun and lay a thin line of caulk over the tape where you want your line to be.

3. Remove Excess Caulking

The next step is to take a damp rag or sponge and wipe off the excess caulking, you want to leave a very thin layer of caulking on there.

4. Paint and Peal
