Them wires they use on a bucket may be a little stiff to bend but give it a try who knows it may just be the ticket.

Use a hammer and shape it silver, I make paint hooks out of them, When painting off an extension ladder use one of those wire handles and bend it to a hook over the rail, Then bend it around and up the side of the ladder, Vola, one paint pot hook.

you are better off mixing a small bucketload other than beating your wrists to all hell.

If I only need a pan or 2 I keep one of those plastic mud pans handy. When done let the mud set then twist it like an ice cube tray and all the mud falls out.
