# Draw a special LaTeX character with different fill and edge colours without resorting TikZ

Is it possible to draw a special LaTeX character, e.g. \blacklozenge of amssymb package, with different fill and edge colours without resorting TikZ?

Inner region of \blacklozenge may be coloured as follows:

textcolor{red}{$\blacklozenge$}


However, this produces a red character surrounded by a red line. Is it possible to change the line colour to, say yellow?

\documentclass{article}
\stackinset{c}{}{c}{}{\scalebox{.7}{\textcolor{red}{$\blacklozenge$}}}{%
\textcolor{yellow!40!orange}{$\blacklozenge$}}

• @TorbjørnT. If one thinks so, one may change the 2nd argument of \stackinset from {} to a small length, such as {.2pt}, for example. Such an offset might occur if the left/right sidebearing of the glyph were not symmetric. – Steven B. Segletes Sep 8 '16 at 11:06
