Crown molding and space between it and ceiling

I just put up some crown molding over the weekend and there's a small space in some spots between the molding and the ceiling... Whats the best way to remedy? Wood putty seems too messy and will get all over the freshly painted ceiling...

Use latex caulking. I like Alex 230.
Apply it with a caulking gun with just a tiny hole in the tip, wipe it on with your finger then wipe it down with a damp sponge. You only need to fill the gap there's no need for it to be on the ceiling or the trim.
