Knoty wood bleed through

I just painted new knoty wood with a water based primer and water based final coat. The knots are bleeding through. Will more coat(s) solve the problem? If not what do you suggest?

Try a couple of coats of shellac over the knots, before priming.

yep...agree with the ed...

I also love Shellac's drying time... It's much better as a primer IMO
