Default smooth plaster patch

what is the best method for priming and painting a smooth veneer plaster patch that blends into the existing already painted area? it seems that the outside edge that blends into the paint has suction spots that look duller than the rest of the area

Having dull or flat spots usually indicates the substrate is not sealed well.
Zinnser 123 or Bin seals patches well, but may make the patch spot shine more than the surrounding area.
Sometimes priming and painting from corner to corner is the only way to get acceptable results.

actual smooth plaster is a pain to patch. painting etc is easy. drywalling it and getting it so you can't see a bubble or outline of the patch = hard.

Like the previous poster said. Prime it real good and then paint it.

Good luck.

And use a heavy nap roller (not brush) to build up the texture to match the orange peel of the existing paint

I just did a drywall repair and had to match the roller stipple/texture of the surrounding area. I did a coat of primer (really a coat of a random can of flat C+K paint+primer), and a coat of color brushed smooth. Then two coats of color, loading up the brush and stippling the patch pointillism style. Worked like a charm.
