Inspired by recent advances in high-quality mesh parameterization,
I present a technique for decorating surfaces with seamless ornamental
patterns. The patterns are transferred from planar drawings with
wallpaper symmetry. I show that when the original drawing belongs
to one of a few specific symmetry groups, then it can easily be
rendered with low distortion on a suitably parameterized mesh. The
result is not symmetric, but retains most of the structure of the
