I use a syringe from West Systems for the smaller, more complicated areas.
Similar to what Aaron said, I use packing tape too, but that’s all I use. I cover the void and burnish it close to the void edges. Then cut a slit with an Exacto and squirt in the epoxy with the syringe. For large holes, I cut away enough tape to pour from the mixing cup.
I’ve never experienced any problems with the epoxy reacting with the tape adhesive. Burnishing the edges doesn’t allow the epoxy to creep under. I use West Systems and System Three.
