Is it possible to customize the font size and other properties of the window titlebars in gnome-shell?

Install gnome-tweak-tool and under "Fonts" there is "window title font"

Thanks that works for font type and size, but I also want to change the titlebars height, color and maybe icons. – nilfric Sep 14 '13 at 13:03
@nilfric For that you have to use themes. Google themes or how to create your own theme – khajvah Sep 14 '13 at 13:12
Hmm, I hoped there would be a way to change this in gnome-session.css, but I can't find any class that references the titlebar. – nilfric Sep 14 '13 at 14:10
