Upside down beer cans....

The cold would increase the pot life of your freshly mixed epoxy....

AND the cured epoxy remnants on the bottom act as ballast for the can to help IT from falling over later on....

Re: Making epoxy stir sticks from popsicle stick offcuts

Many years ago I did what Arn suggetsed and got a bunch of old dental tools. Just ask your dentist. They have tools with more hooks and turns and they all have a left and right end to them. They will last a modeler a lifetime.

Modify them with a dremel grinding wheel to suit your oun needs. When you are done mixing, wipe them off with a paper towel and alcohol and if you forget you can strip them clean from hardened epoxy with an exacto knife. They have a nice slip proof grip and are well balanced too.

For mixing containers, my wife buys eggs in the clear plastic containers (12 nice size), I cut them in half and use a six pack. You are usually doing more than one mix anyway. Very light and don't tip over. Another thing we save is apple sauce/fruit containers in plastic. There is lots of good stuff around.
