Is it safe to paint over cracked asbestos Artex?

There a some cracks developing around Artex ceilings in the rooms of our house. I've had the Artex tested and it contains Chrysotile. Would it be safe to paint over these cracks? I tried in one room and a few bits fell off, is this exposure something to be concerned about? Is there a better way to fill in the cracks without disturbing the ceiling? I can't afford to overboard or plaster.

Should be checked to see if its actually asbestos if it is, it should be painted with encapsulation paint.
