Need paint help

I need some advice on repairing a dent. I have done bodywork and painting before, but it has been many years. I do have all the required equipment.
I plan to sand, fill and prime as usual.

Need some advice (techniques) on:
Applying the base coat and feathering it in.
Applying the clear coat and feathering.

Also, is it ok to use rattle can primer?
What about base and clear coat paint recommendations?
