I am developing an application using Gtk, i want to customize buttons in oval shape or rounded edges. Can anyone tell me broadly how to go about it?

The short answer is that you cannot do this. Rounding edges, and all of that type of thing are handled by the user's theme. You can control some styles with RC files, but it's not going to do everything you want to do.

In order to do this, you are going to have to create your own widget. Another easier option would be to use a GtkImage widget that is contained by a GtkEventBox container.
