Clumping acrylic paints.

Does anyone know what causes acrylic paint to get clumps in the bottle?  It sure makes it hard to do a nice job when I'm picking pieces of paint off while I'm painting.  I've had different brands do this.  I have some fairly old latex paint that I use sometimes and there is not one hard piece in it at all.See More
