In the UK we use a product called stainblock...You just paint it on and it is dry in about 15mins...then you can decorate as normal.
It is shellac based and im sure that most countries supply it..The others here will be able to tell you more about that.
However....As Ive said before, Oil based Gloss works just as well.Apply 1 or two full coats over the stain.
Just make sure the gloss has dried for at least 24 hours before you apply your desired top coat...Works everytime!!
