English translation:draught/draft, taper
Explanation:
When moulding, which I imagine is the purpose of your modelling, if you have the sides perpendicular to the bottom, you will have trouble removing your article from the mould. So you have the top slightly wider than the bottom (never the contrary, obviously). It is this dimensional difference that is known as "dépouille".

In a slightly different field (forging) I have the following definitions:

draught, draft, draw, leave, taper - dépouille
The angle of taper on the side walls of the die impressions to permit the removal of the forging from the dies.
Inclinaison des parois de la gravure qui permet de sortir facilement la pièce forgée hors de la matrice
