try using a Zinzzer coverstain. It will block the stain ans allow you to paint with ordinary oil based top coat

Use zinsser B-I-N it's shellac based,unbeatable for what you intend doing.
Apply 2 coats to be sure of a good seal and leave for 5-7 days for best results,after that time,you can apply and water based or oil based coatings.
