Bathtub slope assistance

hey everyone. A real quick question that is probably a simple answer.

The story:
I have granite tile and I am tiling a new bathtub where just a shower exists. We are sick of just showering and actually wanna relax for once.

The problem:
How do I go about creating the slope to allow water to drain properly? I know it is 1/4" per foot but I am just trying to figure what material I use under the thin set to give this slope.

All help is appreciated
