Von Dutch invented lace painting, Watson perfected it

From Rod and Custom Oct 96, page 125:
One night while laying in bed, Larry Watson's thoughts jumped back 10 years to a long "pow-wow" with the legendary Von Dutch. He had told Watson about the time he lifted up a doily laying on his workbench and the bitchin' design that was left, from the overspray in the shop. Dutch liked it so much he cleared over the imprint - and would tell everyone this was his favorite area of the workbench.

bet you didn't know that! Watson used the idea to try something new, it was on Doug Carrey's Grand Prix and won best paint in the '67 L.A. Sports Arena Custom Car Show.
