Nicotine stains bleeding through newly painted ceiling


How can I stop nicotine stains from bleeding through newly painted ceilings? I used TSP on the walls and ceilings before applying a coat of BIN Zissner primer which appeared to work well. The walls have not bled through and look great, but the ceilings in the bedrooms have yellow-brownish nicotine stains bleeding through a coat of the BIN, and 2 coats of Behr ceiling paint. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem? Would another coat of BIN and a different ceiling paint make a difference?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Should have been primed with an oil based primer before the paint.

For sure you used the Alcohol based pigmented shellac BIN? That usually stops it cold. The only thing I can think is that you had skips or something in the BIN coat that let it get through.
Is it all over , or just in spots?
What kind of ceiling- flat/ knock down/ popcorn?

Yes 100% sure it was the shellac BIN primer. It isn't everywhere, just a few small areas. It could be possible that that those areas weren't coated thick enough, I suppose. The ceiling is flat. So a full thick re-coat of the BIN might do the trick? What ceiling paint would you recommend?

Try this. Just spot an area that is showing with the BIN, let dry (1/2 hr or more) then respot that with your ceiling paint. See if that gets it.
If so repeat over all spots- full coat of BIN if you think that would be easier. Then full coat of ceiling paint.
I don't like Behr in general, their ceiling paint in particular- but in this case it is not the problem. If it was going to bleed, it would through any latex product.

Every thing brush said is true,but, I would let the Bin dry a couple hours or overnight before apply any finish paint

Thanks for your help. I took your suggestion and recovered with BIN and a different ceiling paint and the ceilings look fantastic! Whew. Thanks again.

With nicotine, one washing is usually insufficient. Preparation is a RESULT, not a PROCESS. That being said, do what Brushjockey and Chrisn said and you should be fine...
