Welcome to the forums! What is a chimney crown? Dryloc is pretty much useless to stop water, although it is tauted to be good. Fill us in on what you are doing and where the damage is located, either outside or inside.

Drylok will seal masonry but would need a top coat of paint to protect it from the weather..... but dependent on the size of the crack it might not bridge the gap. Drylok for primer and elastomeric paint for a top coat does a great job of sealing exterior block or stucco.

I assume the crown is the mortar that goes between the top of the flue and the sides of the chimney. Not sure that paint is the best way to go. Could you supply a pic or two?
