I have had good luck using something to takes up space that will absorb the epoxy. I have used anything from dry wood splinters to paper towel or an old rag piece. The ultimate goal is to not let the epoxy run somewhere else. It depends on the application hole size and whats under it. Once the epoxy hardens pilot the hole for the screw with the proper size bit. Most people use a pilot that is too small.

Pro tip... you know that semi hardened tube of 42 or 5200 in your tool bag? This is where those come in. Snip a corner off and dip the self tapper screw in to still soft sealant. This will slow the purchase of the devil goop and put more of it to good use.
