Abstract
Paste is an adhesive starch product. This study shows that we can create our own colored paste without much need of time and money and by performing easy steps. In this way, this investigatory project can help in the budget of students when they can’t afford to buy the expensive colored glue and it can also help as an additional source of income. It’s safe because the ingredients used are cassava starch, water, natural dyes from plants, and alum. Alum as preservative to prolong shelf-life, starch and water as the adhesive solution and natural dyes such as alugbate seeds, turmeric roots and cassava leaves were tested as coloring for this paste by grinding, soaking and squeezing. Heating the solution brought upon its stickiness due to starch. We can also use other colors from plants through further research and study for improvement of colored paste quality.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
We would like to thank our parents for their whole support to our investigatory project research; to our Statistics teacher, Ms, Jennierose Serad, and our biology teacher, Mrs. Anita Labiaga, for their guidance in this investigatory project.
