I mute with my left hand, but the only way I can see doing it right handed would be to lightly touch the string with any right finger. It seems a lot more awkward then left hand muting, and I'm probably not helping at all, but yeah.
Lots of ways! So - I often use my right hand thumb pointing down across all the strings below the one I'm playing. Some times I also use my right hand palm near the bridge to mute all the strings and pluck with thumb/first finger to get a sort of upright sound.
Also - by alternating your right hand fingers you can stop the notes, very quickly after having played the string - essential for 16th notes grooves !
I agree with Bruce - there are lots of ways. As a finger stylist, I most frequently use the side of my plucking hand palm when I want to use right hand muting. It is a bit awkward as it is not my usual hand position, but it works.
