    The white sealant is neat along the plasterboard walls, I've noticed a 2 to 3 mm kind of line mark along the top of the sealant, like as if there's been a further clear sealant along the top of the white sealant, nothing can be felt apart from the white sealant, what could this be?

    Is it due to when the initial white sealant was applied, any ideas?

    At first I thought it was a shadow but it ain't.

    Yeah could be, is that normal though as I thought that the white sealant would be enough?

    If you run a very sharp blade along the seal separating the smeared area you can often just rub away the smear with your thumb.
