The Deco tool is on the Tools panel, it allows you to apply decorative drawing effects to the Stage or a selected object on the Stage.
With this tool you can apply several effects: Vine Fill, Grid Fill, Symmetry Brush, 3D Brush, Building Brush, Decorated, Fire Animation, Flame Brush, Flower Brush, Lightning Brush, or Tree Brush.
All these effects can be selected from the Drawing Effect in the "Properties panel" (after you've selected the "Deco Tool"). Each of these properties have their own options (on the Advanced Options sub-menu), which can create quite complex combinations of effects.
