In reply to Non paintable caulk by Bruce Ridenour on March 5th, 2002 10:52 AM [Go to top of thread]

My worry would be that rubber cement or contact cement (its big brother) would probably not be smooth but would be bumpy and show through the paint, even if it DID work, which I don't know. The only safe thing that I could think of is to remove the calking, repair any damage with joint compound, and calk after wall paper with something like Phenoseal brand latex calk. The Phenoseal has a great selection of colors and can be tooled with damp finger or smooth damp sponge. If you can't wait for joint compound to dry I use plaster of paris b/c it dries very fast, but don't put on to much b/c it is a b%tch to sand.
