Mix Epoxy With a Can

The bottom of an aluminum can works perfectly for mixing epoxy because the metal is smooth and concave and even has a small lip all the way around the edge.

When you need a surface to mix epoxy in a pinch, reach into the recycling bin. The bottom of an aluminum can works perfectly for mixing epoxy because the metal is smooth and concave and even has a small lip all the way around the edge.

Once you’re finished mixing and applying the epoxy to your project, allow the adhesive to dry on the aluminum can. Then you can cleanly remove it and reuse the can for future epoxy-mixing tasks!
