Evening out plaster?

We recently removed the VERY OLD paper which had been on our bathroom walls and the steam and condensation from the hot water within the room has tended to make it stick more over the years. Now it's been removed, the paper has taken away chunks of the plaster from the walls.

Can you reccomend me any products that i could use to somehow fill them in? =S

How big are the chunks?

If they are less than an inch I would shellac prime the areas then fill with plaster patch. Work quickly after mixing the patch because it hardens rapidly.

We just use 20 or 45 minute hot mud. It sets up quickly, doesn't shrink, and can be sanded the same day. Unless you're a purist, you don't need to use plaster, which is harder to use in my opinion...
