      Take a look at the pvc lumber they have at the big box lumber stores. Some of the trim profiles are very flexible, yet give you a fair curve, you can also mill your own from some of the larger stock.

      Thanks for the ideas, guys. I'm going to try to cut a 1/4" batten today and see how that works. If that cracks, too, I'll start trying the alternatives.

      It's a really tight bend.
