New Face: Customhouse “Uri”

This doll is Customhouse Ange AI “Uri.” Uri is a 10″ tall, resin ball-jointed doll made by Customhouse. Customhouse was once a very popular company. They are no longer in business, but some of their nicest sculpts are still available from Luts (eluts.com).



This doll is several years old and has minor yellowing. Cleaning and painting eliminates much of the yellowing and makes her look very fresh.

I painted her as a gift for a new collector. I would like to encourage new collectors to seek out older dolls like this one that are available for bargain prices, rather than being tempted to buy recast dolls.

I tried out the sealant, ‘Citadel Purity Seal’ on this doll. It’s a nice product and more affordable than VOLKS Zoukeimura sealant or Mister Super Clear. I like it but it’s very “toothy.” The surface seems very durable. I think it is a better choice for body blushing rather than faces.

For fun, here are some extreme closeups:


Tip with web
Sealants must be sprayed outdoors (or in extremely well-ventilated areas) and users must wear protective respirators. Select a respirator that filters vapors and make sure it fits well. If you can smell it, it’s in your lungs. This is a picture of the sealant I used on this doll – notice that the entire can is covered in safety warnings. IMG_7909 (002)
