Hi All,

I've recently skimmed my bathroom ceiling & in-between the ceiling and tiles there was existing caulk/grout?
I plan to mist coat then paint it in a week or so but want to finish off the meet/internal corner with a nice white finish.
Silicone obviously wont do the job as it will mould, would general caulk do the job?

Also, there are a few minor dents here and there on the ceiling which i'd like to go over, would a poly filler type substance to the job?

Thanks in advance.

I think with any caulk or silicone it will go mouldy... its a damp environment... atleast with those you can reapply them when they do go mouldy...

you could use a filler but it will still go mouldy I think...

Toupret filler to deal with your dents.

Where the tiles meet the ceiling, depending on how big the gap is, you could grout tight to the ceiling, then finish off with caulk/silicone or something like CT1 which you can paint over.
