Why does my crown molding look darker than my trim paint?

Andy asked 2 weeks ago

I just installed crown molding pre-painted with the same paint as my existing baseboards and other trim.  Almost immediately, the crown looks several shades darker than the baseboards.  When I touch up that baseboards with the paint used on the crown, it is seamless.  Is it normal that crown will look darker in natural light due to shadowing?

No…prepainting is not always accurate to the color desired… next time paint it yourself…
