Use the knotting first while the wood is raw. There is nothing wrong with using the red oxide as a primer. Thin it down a bit first. The only thing will be that you need more coats of white to cover it later.

thanks robbie-uk, yes getting rid of the red on a final white feature could be hassle.
thanks.
