The glaze is formulated to be used before the wax, so washing is not necessary. Glaze is just a superfine polish; it affords none of the protection of a wax. You may run into problems mixing wax and glaze from different manufacturers, but you likely won`t have problems using a natural carnauba wax.
Ideally, for breathing purposes, wet sand and then wait a while before buffing. The sanding removes a thin outer layer of paint, allowing more solvents to escape. As long as you can smell the paint, it is outgassing.

yes waxing before wet sanding very pointless.

I mean do i wax it now after glazing it or do i wax the next time i wash the car?

D///M3 had said something about breathing and sealing the paint
