How To Patch Plaster Before Painting?

Good Questions

Pin it button big

Q: I want to repaint my space but have a couple of patches that need repair and I'm not sure what products to use or how to go about doing it. I would like for someone to give me step my step instructions listing products I can find at Home Depot. This pic is of a wall by a window. The outer wall is brick, so I believe the inside wall is concrete with a plaster coating. So my question is: How do I repair this before painting? Most info I can find relates to drywall.
