When we have a small area to "patch", we use the "Homax" brand specifically for "Orange Peel".
We get the patched area completely smooth, then apply the spray in one direction, and then pattern it in another direction, like a graph. Make sure to "feather" the end of the spray - just like using an "airbrush" when painting a car.

You can pick up a touch up portable bump type from Depot or Menards. Works just fine for minor touch ups. Just mix up some mud and go for it.
