plaster ? again

Previous owners painted over those plastic peices you insert in plaster walls to hang pictures. I pried out some, obviously left a hole. I used plaster patch to fill them, stayed slightly powdery in finish. Is that normal and fine to prime and paint over? Any other suggestions for removal of peices and filling?

I often will take a stiff putty knife and smack off the part that is higher than the surface, slightly tap whats left to set it a little deeper and then spackle ( might take 2 applications) . sand and spot prime, you're ready for finish.
