Not very much stress on a patch at all unless it is a big patch in an area that will be subject to movement. Would just coat the whole patch, slap some fibafuse over it and go from there! Then that area is stronger than the rock itself
If you don't prefill and let the mud set, at least partially, it will sag. Then your patch will stick out from the wall or ceiling. And double taping is a must with mesh tape.

I understand that in many areas, the time well spent (10 minutes or so) prefilling the joints with quicksetting compound prior to taping is too much time. I live in a fairly "high rent" locale, where we are expected by most of (but interestingly not all of ) the general contractors to do high quality work. If not, we are called back to redo it on our own dime. I know that the economies of many other areas require you do the work no better than " Good 'nuff fer who's it's fer", in order to be awarded the work. That doesn't seem to fly with my clients.

Re: skim coat plaster


Mesh flats only and always use Durabond/EasySand. Paper on everything else.

Re: skim coat plaster


There is a way to get good angles with mesh and hot mud, we'll see if ice chimes in.
