Cracks in cinder block chimney stucco

Is there an inexpensive way to cover the cracks in the stuccoed chimney without redoing the entire stucco surface?

I was wondering if an epoxy paint might cover the cracks.

The cracks are not getting worse but look very bad.

Thanks.

In the short run, repairing the cracks and repainting may be simpler and more effective than trying to hide the cracks with epoxy.

Welcome to the forums

I wouldn't use an epoxy paint. Use an acrylic latex caulk for the cracks and then paint [over sound paint or primer] with an elastromeric paint. Elastromeric paint will hide minor cracks and also does a good job of waterproofing the stucco.
