Default Clumping glitter in glass ornaments

Every time I make glitter bulbs, the glitter seems to clump up in spots around the bulb, rather than the glitter spreading evenly around as I shake it up. I'm shaking pretty vigorously too. I make sure there is enough reinker to entirely coat the glass. Why is this happening and how do you get the glitter to spread more evenly?

After you put the ink in the ornament, do you turn it upside down and let the extra ink run back out? The same thing was happening to me, and it turned out that there was too much ink in there. Try letting it drain for a couple of minutes. Maybe that will help.
