ACan I use coconut oil to paint on fondant instead of cocoa butter? Will they have the same effect?

Disregarding the visual effect, you might consider that coconut oil melts at approx. 24°C (76°F), while cocoa butter melts at approx. 33°C (92°F). At room temperature, coconut oil would be dripping off the cake.
