Cadmium Red in a Jar of Water

My pricy tube of cadmium red broke and was oxidizing. I squeezed it into a jar of water and keep it in a cool dark place (the fridge). When I need some cad red I scoop it our with a knife and add a little linseed oil. It's regular oil paint, not the water-soluble type,  so it never mixes with the water.
