The header image, determined by the HeaderImageUrl property, is not related to the ImagesPath property (and cannot be related), because this image is not part of the RadGrid skin and is set by the developer.
In addition, the RadGrid columns are not themable, because they are not web controls, but more like settings containers. Please keep your current approach.
All the best,
the Telerik team
