The glaze is just egg white mixed with a fork with a little water. I brush it on the bread just before baking, and it also serves to hold the sesame or poppy seeds in place. Yes, the seeds go on before baking.
If using sesame seeds or poppy seeds, be sure to refrigerate them after opening the container to maintain their freshness. Whole seeds will go rancid if left to get warm for extended periods of time. I keep mine tightly sealed in the fridge.
