A tip for small quantities. Prep and mark up the work. Spilt the material in two lots and mix one. Go hell for leather on one side, aiming to do half the job. If you don't quite make it, you know what you have to make up on the second shot
I had the same experience with West Epoxy, the secret is to use wide shallow pots rather than deep pots. It keeps the mix cooler & slows it down.

Looking loads better there
