Ts cam cover leak made worse

Stupid gasket on the GTV TS. It was weaping by the dipstick so I bought a new one and installed. Cleaned up the surfaces. Mated it down correctly. Didn't over tighten it. Now it ****** out all over the alternator and the exhaust heatshield and dipstick. Is there a sealant I can add to help with the installation?
