Shouldn't you ask how far it is to the wall on the right first. That would be one lump of filler if you have 6 ft over there.

The OP says the gap is about 3' long as much as 3/4 " in 1 spot. That's what I responded to. Contractors remodeling high end houses would ask me to fix things like this, including removing the trim on the can light to float it as far as necessary, while I was already on site drywalling & or doing plaster repairs.
It does take skill & yes, so does caulking. Like you, I've seen a lot of caulk damage done with good intentions.

I didn't see the 3 ft. You would do some filling with quarter inch and then float it out, not that my floating would be much better than looking at the gap.

Isn't this where scribing comes into play?

Scribing the crown will enhance the mistake. See post 9.

Impossible to tell without detailed photos or on site look.


If a shoe base or small cove molding can be purchased in the exact same finish it might be possible to cover the gap and fool the eye. There would still be some uneven reveals but all the way up near the ceiling I don't think even you would notice them after a while.
