Is there any way to repair this without a respray?

Hi All

When I bought my car from the previous owner there was a small crack in the paint on the front bumper which has gradually gotten worse. I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations of how I could make it look better without getting the bumper resprayed. I'm fairly sure that the damage is too bad for touch up paint to help with (having no prior experience with it, have just researched online), but I thought I'd check to see if anyone on here has fixed something similar.

Thanks

You could cover it with a front bumper lip, but then again you'd have to get that painted.

Another option is to run a razor blade around the crack, just enough to score the paint to prevent if from webbing further. Then remove the flaked paint and use touch up to cover the black plastic.

Razor blade sounds like it could work! Thanks for the idea.

If anyone else has another idea please keep them coming
