Fixing Paint Chips on a Jem

Hello All, I'm a new member looking for some advice on either fixing a pair of small chips in the paint of one of my Jems. It is a Jem7vwh that I bought 6 years ago and now it has a small chip on the back edge - about the length of a pencil point, and another even smaller nick (pin point) on the front, below the tremelo. Is there a way to fix it? Is it possible to do yourself? If it can't be fixed is there a safe way to seal it so the chip doesn't enlarge itself ?

I'd appreciate any advice, even - "don't bother", just thought I'd ask, it has been like that for years so I guess I can live with it.
