[DML] oil pan gasket removal

Hey Group, 
Any tips out there on removing the oil pan gasket easily? I have the engine  
on a stand with the pan off.  The OEM gasket was a good one - it's  made of 
felt and is 99% still on the crankcase.  The gasket just comes off  in little 
layered shreds.  Do I just need hours of patience or is there a  better way to 
remove it?  I took the pan off just to see the inside out of  curiosity and to 
get the pan cleaned and painted.  Maybe that wasn't such a  good idea. I 
definitely don't want to start scraping this thing with a gasket  scraper and risk 
marring the mating surface.  I am definitely not doing  this twice!
Thanks -
