Ok, Ive been painting with my fingers again. I wash them off quickly, but I know this is not safe. A cadmium is a cad, right? The stuff is toxic?

The cadiums are toxic, but at a low level, like lead. So don't make a habit of it. However, the chances are that your paints are old, because they now have alternatives that don't have the same problems. The tubes are supposed to be marked with ASTM conformance stuff, so you can know which ones are safe.
