“Pigmented is a clue”. Gravity affects pigment when it is sitting in a can. Pigment and other solids will settle to the bottom and adhere to each other. Have you completely stirred the material including scrapping the bottom of the can? Stirring round and round is not mixing the various solids in the material. That type of stirring only stratifies the various solids. Here are some stills taken when producing a video years ago.
Picture 1 = Pigment on bottom
Picture 2 = Stirring with stick vertical and round and round does not mix thoroughly various weighted solids.
Picture 3 = Stirring at an angle mixes various weighted solids.

Filtration may help by pouring the material through a filter as you pour it into the guns cup.
