Fixing cracks in resin

I have this piece of furniture that I believe is made of a resin and it has developed some cracks. I have the original paint and lacquer used to coat the furniture. I just need to learn how to fill these cracks to they look seamless. All/any advice is great appreciated. Pictures of the cracks are attached.

Re: Fixing cracks in resin

First of all you will need to find out what type of 'resin' it is made of. Secondly, if you don't stabilize the areas, the cracks will continue to migrate. Can you get to the back of these areas? That is where you will have to start the process.
