Default problem with new copic marker

I just ordered a few new colors online and started using them on my Christmas cards. They work well except for one, it will work ok for an image or two and then a blob of ink comes out. It's a skin color on a little face, so of course the blob ruins the image. Any ideas on what the problem might be?

Try removing both ends of the marker to let the ink redistribute.

I have to take caps off my markers (all alcohol markers will do this) after plane travel. Pop the caps off for a few seconds as suggested, it will equalize the pressure. You should be good to go after that.

Thanks! I will try both ideas and see if that helps.
