Crown Material: Plaster

Because it's made to order in 6-foot lengths, each hand-cast piece can be richly ornamented with crisp detail. Plaster is heavy and rigid, and usually requires a pro to install it using screws and construction adhesive. Joints are filled with plaster, then the surface must be painted.

Prices range from about $5 to $30 per linear foot.
