Thank you,

When I worked out of my garage I made a plywood box lined with 2" blue Styrofoam. I tried different wattage bulbs, 15 watt bulb kept the box warm even when the garage temperature went below 15°. I stored paint cans that were partially used upside down. Any skim was on the bottom.

Store non-combustible or latex products in a closet in the house just for the winter is an option too.

FWIW a coke cooler will get to 90 degrees if the refrigeration fails- and the only heat source is a 9 watt evaporator fan motor.
