That seems like a good way.  Another common cause of incomplete curing is incomplete mixing.  


There are couple of other ways.  You can buy small quantity tubes with a mixing nozzle, but they're a bit expensive.  I usually use a twinned resin/hardener syringe to get the proper ratio, and I squeeze it into a baggie and seal it and then mix it thoroughly.  Work the mixed epoxy into a corner of the baggie and then snip off the corner.  Use it like a baker's pastry bag.
