This example duplicates shape one on myDocument, sets the fill for the duplicate, moves it 70 points to the right and 50 points up, and rotates it 30 degrees clockwise.

Set myDocument = ActivePresentation.Slides(1)
With myDocument.Shapes(1).Duplicate
    .Fill.PresetTextured msoTextureGranite
    .IncrementLeft 70
    .IncrementTop -50
    .IncrementRotation 30
End With
