How do I apply texture to my piece?

Cloth for texture

Cotton lace, burlap, cheesecloth or other cotton, absorbent materials can be soaked in slip and added to pieces for interesting textures. Soak fabric in slip, squeeze out lightly, brush on leatherhard clay surface, dry slowly, and bisque. The fabric will burn out leaving the slip texture behind.

Can this process be bisqued fire in an electric kiln without damaging your kiln, or is this technique strictly for gas/wood fired kilns?
