How high a temperature for egg wash?

How high a temperature can you use with egg wash? Can you use an egg wash at 425ºF or 450ºF (bread baking temperatures), or will the egg wash get too dark? I have had success gluing on seeds with a cornstarch mixture at those temperatures, but the overall look is not as appealing.

If you want to bake something with egg wash at high temperature, try using just the lightly beaten white of the egg.
