I've got this old house and that has recently been underpinned, unfortunately because of that a crack on the front facade of the building opened up (probably previously patched)
What is the best and easiest way to fill out an the crack and kinda patch the paint so it's not that obvious?
Someone suggested me to use a flexible gap filler like this: https://www.bunnings.com.au/selleys-no- ... lsrc=aw.ds and then paint it using the same colour!?
I think it's rendered but does it a bit of same colour paint be too obvious? do I need to fill and render it instead
Any suggestions will be appreciated

There is an acrylic polymer render available, it sticks to anything and will probably do your job nicely. Just gouge out the crack and trowel it in and clean it up with a damp sponge.
