If the henna is coming out in glops, that's because it's almost-but-not-quite-clogged, so you'll be pushing against the pressure, and when it finally gives, whoosh, a whole glob comes out. Basic rule: the finer the hole, the finer the henna needs to be sifted. On rev. Bunny's carrot bag page she says to keep snipping bits of the point until it comes out steady and surely. Same goes for a cone. The hole and the consistency of the paste need to be in balance.
If the tip is only occasionally clogged, I squeeze the tip between my fingertips (like CCJ reccomends for carrot bag clogs) or hold it over some waste paper and do the sqeeuze-glop thing before going on...

Hope it helps!
