Some plates may have 10-15 layers and you need to keep in mind that the first layer is what will be on the top layer of the paper when it is printed, so mentally you have to keep in mind that you are working backwards. Or you can flip your plate over and look at your image that way, but it never really looks like the actual print. I love the unknown of what your print will look like!!! I hate when I have to go through too many prints to get a good one! Oh well, that's part of the whole process.
