Lightbulb Best Methods Crown Molding

I'm Really interested in the best Methods to repair cracked and chipped crowned molding. Is it always better to replace the whole thing? If you have some time it would really be helpful to me if you can give me your opinions on repairing chips in crown molding.

Anything paint grade can be repaired with bondo fairly easily. Some people like spackle but that sucks up a lot of moisture when you go to paint it so you can usually tell exactly where spackle was used.

I've used bondo for repairing woodwork. The thing about using it is you should sand it before it gets "rock" hard. This will save you a lot of time. IT sounds like you have a lot of cracks if you were considering replacing the crown.

Just trying to make it look perfect

I don't have a lot of cracks but i really want it to look like it's never been worked on like brand new and I was wondering what the best method of repairing cracks were.
