Expiration was the first to pioneer/explain this trick.

  • [*:31wqkk2e]Write the text on a new layer with one of the colors you want.
    [*:31wqkk2e]Duplicate the layer.
    [*:31wqkk2e]Use Hue/Saturation :HueSaturation: or Recolor :RecoloringTool: to color the top layer to your other color.
    [*:31wqkk2e]Use a transparent gradient ( :AllColorChannels: :arrow: :AlphaChannel: ) and draw a gradient on the top layer as you would want it to appear.

It's a little troublesome, but it gets rid of the aliasing problem without having to go through excessive feathering, which makes it looks over-blurry anyway.
