Paint On Top of Silicon Caulk

Conrad asked 4 years ago

I had a new front door installed. I put KILZ on the pressure-treated wood over the weekend. Last night when I tried to paint (hunter green) the frame areas around the door, I was getting “cracking” in the caulked areas. This morning, I looked at the door and I also noticed that the caulk that was painted is getting “mushy and rubbery.”

I am thinking that the contractor used a silicon caulk. I do want to have the hunter green color on the frame areas. I read that I could put a white shellac over the caulk. Should I get rid of the paint that is cracking (if so, how)?
Any suggestions?
