Delicate rock with Mud Removal Help

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.

Showing a few pictures would probably be of some benefit to obtain more pinpoint advice.

Sounds like the mud and the fossil are the same thing and married to each other, so there's not much you can do to improve on that. But like Kane says, a photo here might help.
