Crown Molding Over Tile

So the wife has asked for crown molding in the bathroom that we are remodeling and I'm not sure how to go about this. I've done crown before so that's not an issue. It's in a bathroom (and extending into the tub surround) so it will need to be urethane molding.

The tub surround will be marble tile so I can't nail into it, do I just use a silicone/urethane adhesive?

Also, one wall of the surround continues on as drywall. The problem is the tile will be installed so that it is on top of cement baord that is flush with the drywall... thus making a 3/8" offset. In this diagram the wall to the farthest right is the one in question. The green is cement board, where the tile will be amd the gray is drywall. So how do I hande this offset? Do I just neet to cut a sliver of molding to make this offset?

For 3/8" you could cut the crown flat at that point, and allow the crown to "slide" beside the other one, and caulk/paint it, but a proper double turn is really in order, although it is, like you say, only a sliver. Try the slide, and see if it is too much of a drop, and repost your results.
