I hope I'm not the only one that didn't know this trick .....

I bought a quart of 2-part hi-temp epoxy that came in small 'paint' cans.  I was trying to figure a way to pour the resin (3.3 to 1 by weight mix) without having to clean out the 'groove' each time.  What I ended up with was two pieces of blue painters tape in the shape of a 'V' that just covers the inner ring.  I have to clean the inner ring before each pour so the tape will stick to it.  I pour the thick part (the 1) first since it's more viscous than the other (3.3) and use a finger (wear your rubber gloves!) to wipe the outside residue into the paper cup on the scale.  The resin on the underside of the tape will drain back into the can, and you just have to remove and dispose of the tape.
