#790 COLLECTION: Slope pieces

Updated: May 1, 2021

Today we're continuing a new series called COLLECTION where we look at all types of a specific piece. However this time we're just taking a look at the our 8 favourite slopes which we feel are essential for many techniques, although there are plenty more useful ones out there that we just didn't have space to include. For the pieces we chose, we included the average price per piece as it's interesting to see the rough value of the different slopes.

Using a variety of slopes is very important in techniques such as rockwork where you want it to look as natural and random as possible. You can take this further just like the examples by Isaac Synder and Izavagooba on Flickr when you position the slopes in different directions.

What's your favourite slope piece? Did we include it in our list or did we miss it out?
