Eddie. Another idea for mixing and applying your epoxy. Make use of two things that most of us have around the place these days - expired credit ( and other plastic credit sized) cards, and old CDs. Cutting your old credit card in half diagonally (the best way to ensure against re-use or fraud) produces two great applicators. They can be used more than once as the cured epoxy does not adhere well and can be scraped off. The CDs make great disposable mixing bases. The epoxy sticks pretty well, but you can usually get three or four mixes on the one CD.
I use these all the time with great results.
