Exprès as an adverb

This lesson is about the expression ‘faire exprès de’ + infinitive. My question is whether the word ‘exprès’ can also be used directly after other verbs to equally mean ‘on purpose’. For example, in the examples above is it possible to say “mon petit frère a cassé exprès ma poupée” and “j’ai renversé exprès mon verre” to mean the same things as “mon petit frère a fait exprès de casser ma poupée” and “j’ai fait exprès de renverser mon verre” ?
