Removed damp paint patches / how to conceal new paint?

Hi guys, I have some damp patches on the wall of a new house that I've just bought. I've scraped them off and tried to sand the uneven join between that old 'good' paint and the revealed plaster.

I planed to use some johnstones damp proof paint before repainting the wall but feel that I will still see ridge marks where I have removed the bubbled paint.

Does anyone have any tips on how to build this back up?

Many thanks,

Devs.

Hi Devs, just mix up a little powder filler and spread that over where you have scraped, or the ridges, when dry, gently sand, run your hand over it and if it feels flush with the wall then its covered, if you can feel or see a slight ridge still, fill again.
When I have come up against this, I would paint some oilbased undercoat, or in your case the damp stuff, over the area first, when dry, do your filling like I mentioned above, then I would go over the filler again with the oilbased undercoat.
When thats dry, i would then touch up a couple times with slightly thinned emusion (whatever colour your going to use), then I would roll the whole wall so the paint is even.
