A backer piece is always a good idea except for the smaller crown molding (say under 2 inches). Crown molding was designed to make the transition between uneven ceilings and walls look nice. That is the reason it is always installed at an angle to both surfaces. The more uneven your surfaces the better to use smaller and thinner crown molding. Only experience will dictate how thin or how wide. Fortunately, caulking was developed to handle most imperfections between the molding and the surfaces. The point then becomes, how much caulking is acceptable to you. Almost all people I know use caulking for dealing with the imperfections (cracks) between the crown molding and the walls and ceilings. Good lucK! Hope this helps
