I've tried everything I can think of to remove this mud that is caked on so many of my newly acquired specimens. Every time I use my brush to remove the mud the fossils beneath become horribly disfigured. Any ideas for how to remove the mud and keep the fossil intact at the same time? I can't use water because the rock is soft and cracks when wet. Any brush recommendations? Currently I am using a standard paintbrush.
aplomado posted a topic in Questions & AnswersWhat surprised you when you started fossil hunting? For me, I was surprised at how well some delicate things survived for so long... like Cretaceous worm burrows, easily visible. Shark teeth that look almost new. Fossil driftwood that is still soft and "woody."
