GDI+ Antialiasing a region or fully subtract one path from another

Is there any nice, clean way to antialias a region? I do not mind doing it "unsafe".

Here is what I have: a small transparent bitmap with a single (filled with one or 2 colors brush) shape. Shape is resulted from region>path intersection.

I tried to use 2 graphics paths alone (automatically solves antialiasing problem). But because resulted shape must be a Photoshop "subtract path" equivalent, I was unable to find any solution to fully subtract one path from another.

So I'm thinking going with a region, then getting pixels from memory, finding shape edges.. but that is as far as I went. If anyone can point me to the right direction as to what to do next, possibly has algorithm for the alpha at edges, or has more elegant solution to the problem.

Thanks.

Settled for a compromise with path subtraction (Photoshop subtract path simulation). On fully opaque background, fill path2 with texture brush from current bitmap created before path1 is filled. If any transformation were applied to bitmap graphics before texture brush is created, then brush has to have reversed transformation applied.
