If the material in the can is cold it can affect viscosity as well ...

I took a picture of how I check paint viscosity before it goes in the gun. Touch your stir stick to a nearby vertical surface so some material starts to rundown it.If you watch the speed paint drips down the side a test panel or in this case a paint can, you'll get a reference "benchmark" to know if it needs more or less thinner/reducer. The drip under the paint stick in this picture is just right! The short one needs more thinner/reducer and the long "too fast" one needs more paint...

Clear should run the same speed ..
