I do all smooth lines with select menu:

For example if you have a hand path - you can then make a selection
from it (from Path Tab).
You can allways save your selections to channels (From selection Tab)
so you can leter to channel to selection (from channel Tab)
Then make a selection from the curved path (that you have inside the
hand) - this selection should  bigger than (at leaset 100px bigger in
this example) the hand. Then from menus Select-Feather (for exapmle
100px) and add the darker color to it. Then get again you hand
selection, then Select->Invert and cut out all outside of the hand.

It's simple to show but hard to describe.
