I need to cover up knots in pine boards. The problem is I 've already covered this wood with solid stain primer and then used latex STAIN. Can I use knotting shellac over the latx STAIN without it bleeding through again? If I can, please advise me in how to prepare the wood and a good name shellac to use. I plan on using LATEX STAIN once I cover the knots, is this okay?

You are perfectly correct.

Use B-I-N - it is a great shellac. Only apply this over the knots - not the whole surface - B-I-N is not designed to be a large surface primer.

Once the B-I-N has dried (give it a few hours)- apply your topcoat of stain - and you should be all set!

I spoke to the BIN folks directly as I want to cover the knots on my board and batten before I apply a full cover stain (Arborcoat by Benjamin Moore). The said that the stain will not fully penetrate the knots that have had BIN applied which I wondered about; therefore the knots will not be fully covered.

It seems that if I do the full cover won't fully cover...hence my dilemma - your opinions most welcome.
