I've always used a thick ring of plumbers putty behind the plates leaving a gap at the bottom for all my plates and then put a thin layer of silicone caulk around the plate except for the bottom. I always thought this is how everyone did it until a plumber asked me what I was doing when he saw me tear out the foam backing of the escutcheon plate. Do you do the same?
