As I noted, it's trivial.

Given a font named Example, w/ variants called Example Outline and  
Example Solid one would do something like:

{\textcolor{white}{\fontspec{Example Solid}#1}}\end{picture} 
\textcolor{black}{\fontspec{Example Outline}}}

Not tested, not even sure if I got the grouping right --- but one has  
to have the fonts first.

If you don't, I'd suggest using Cenon to convert type to paths and set  
the colours as desired:
