burning in thinset on drywall


I am installing glass tile on a drywall backsplash. A professional Tile installer recommends that I put thin coat of thinned thinset with flat edge to put a on the drywall (burn in) and let it dry before doing tile, anyone have experience doing this? It sounds like the thinset is just thick enough to fill any pours in paint on drywall.

This is the correct way to do it. Also place the same thin coat on the back of the tile (not letting it dry) before setting the tile.
