Yes if it's a 2 part putty, If it's use straight out of the container that means it's a lacquer putty, very prone to shrinking after solvents hit it. If the cracks are extremely fine you could get away with the lacquer putty but again that technology dates back to Henry Ford. I would, sand the area with 180, squeeze the 2 part glaze into the cracks, and block them out, re prime, block and paint. Those cracks are usually in the paint, if the bumper was deteriorating it would look like a web, not straight lines. Make sure you get the glaze right into the cracks.
