skinning in gtk is called resource themes.

You will be using the Style class (every gtk object has a style) and
resource files to adapt the styles to your liking.

Take a look at the resource class inthe gtk api.
That should get you started.

Then look at the default themes installed on your machine, called gtk.rc
or something like it.

If you are working on a windows machine, and you installed a recent
mono, you should have a theme switcher tool.

Have fun.
