Sounds like you are using Gudebrod HT Metallic thread. That is basically all I use. I DO NOT use color sealer on it! You might get a bump but who cares at this point. I brush a normal coat of finish on the wraps, flame it quickly and due to the heat the finish thins up a bit and gets down into the thread. Then I wipe the brush off and remove the excess finish. Keep wiping the brush dry as you go along removing the excess finish. This will give a good base for installing the next layer of thread.
