Not saying it can't be done, but paint is only one-dimensional while crown molding is three dimensional. I have seen plaster used as crown molding, but I'm thinking paint is gonna look cheap and unprofessional. I suppose you could paint a swath 6 to 12 inches down onto the walls in either white or the trim color you are using, but I'm thinkin you would be better served to just spend a few extra bucks, buy some crown, and do it up right.

Step one...buy and install crown mldng.

Step two...prep and paint.

Step three...Stand back and look, now you have done the only thing I know of that will make paint look like crown mldng.



I watched the linked clips, but did not see anythign but another example of what happens when you give an idiot both a video camera and a computer.
Maybe he should save his money and but some light bulbs so he would not have to paint trim work by candle and fireplace light; with a canvas drop cloth just waiting for an ember to fly out onto it and start a fire. Or was this to set the mood for an evening of romantic painting

Apoligies for being the smart A**, but I could not resist this one.
