Just seeking some inspiration for packing araldite into a hole about 10mm in diameter, without ending up getting more of it on me.

I'd mask the surface around the hole you're bound to get some around it. If you mask a reasonable area you could work it in with a small flexible piece of plastic as a spatula. Another option is the epoxy that comes in a two part syringe and mixes together as you squeeze it out.

Absolute beginners.
It may pay to caulk the area immediately below the infill area beforehand with some papermache or silicone squirted in to limit the spread of the araldite, unless you want the whole wall/door filled ;)

I have been building RC models for the best part of 40 years and when I need to get 5min or 30min epoxy to run into cracks and holes out comes the spoon.(y)

I believe this is a 10mm hole in a door skin so a bit different I think, I am familiar with warming epoxy to reduce its viscosity though 👍
