I stumbled upon this battery operated drink mixer (which works well as paint mixer) at a dollar store. Seems to have ample power to adequately mix small jars of paint. Uses 2-AA batteries and comes with a wire stand which is prone to tipping over. All said, not bad for a buck!

Seibler: You might make a drying wheel out of this unit, However, it would be an extremely high rpm drier and wouldn't handle more than couple of dry flies!

Something I forgot to mention: It might be best to pulse the switch to avoid spinning the paint so fast that centrifical force causes the paint to climb out of the jar, and onto everything in the immediate area.
After close examination of the paint spots on my clothing and the dog,
it might work good for applying a splatter finish.
