Answer for Patches still showing.

Two things might be happening. You didn't mention priming the patches before applying the finish paint. The patches will soak up some paint causing flashing, areas with a different sheen. If this is the case simply apply another coat of paint. Try painting the patches again then paint the entire wall if needed.

Another possibility is you used a course grit sandpaper or sanding sponge. You could try re-floating the patches and then re-sanding with a smooth sanding sponge. Spot prime and paint. Paint the entire wall only if needed.

If these ideas don't work then painting with a good flat could hide the patches.
