Sharon, I have several pieces of acrylic plexiglass and I often take one of those along for mixing.  It can also be used as a surface for single sheets of watercolor paper, and you can just mix your colors in the area between the paper and the edge of the plexiglass.  If I really want to stay with the tins, I make sure to take one that I’ve painted with enamel so I can use the lid for mixing or I just mix on the paper.
