    Try a hair dryer on low power and set on cool.

    I use a soft paint brush, around 1.5 inches wide. I keep a new one just for dusting off old mounts. Brush the bird lightly keeping the brush strokes moving from head to tail. You shouldnt damage the plumage , and you will find that a lot of the dust should come away
