By “sizes” I assume you mean sides. If you use enough coats of primer and sand that will probably work but I wouldn’t trust it.

There are several ways so size the edges for example: shellac, wood glue, epoxy resin, auto body filler, dry wall compound. I’ve even used caulk.

If you sand the edges first, then apply a thin layer of wood glue followed by several coats of primer it will look pretty good.

You could also consider applying a thin edge banding.

Don’t know about water based paint I only used oil based paint on MDF.

MDF comes in thicknesses up to 1 1/4” I think. Have you thought about that?
