    I primed a wall with Kilz-2. This over a previously painted wall (drywall) that had something spilled on it.
    When the kilz dried, I noticed that the stain bled through.
    I heard of using some type of varnish sealer but, can't remeber exactly what I should use.
    Any suggestions?

    A very light coat of paint from a spray can does wonders for hiding stains.

    If you had used Zinzeer 123 this would not happen I find using Kilzs is like priming with milk. A good stain killing primer has shellac in it.
    A spray paint not made for priming wood or sheetrock may contain fish oil which paint will not stick to. (like Rustolium) And may leave a shinny spot when painted.
    I'd just give it another coat of primer and paint it.

    Nope, painted the wall to see the outcome and the stain didn't bleed through.
    Applying primer is different than applying paint.
    You just need a thin even coat of primer to hold the previous paint from coming through and the new paint from going in.
