    Nice 'tool' Workshopshed. A suggestion if I may.

    I put quick release masking tape (the blue stuff) on either side of the joint the width of the desired bead so I get nice straight lines and to keep the silicone/caulk off of the surrounding surfaces. Pull the tape immediately after smoothing and before it skins.
