Examples from texts

Mr Dombey's cup of satisfaction was so full at this moment, however, that he felt he could afford a drop or two of its contents, even to sprinkle on the dust in the by-path of his little daughter.
Но в этот момент чаша радости мистера Домби была так полна, что он почувствовал желание уделить одну-две капли ее содержимого даже для того, чтобы окропить пыль на заброшенной тропе своей маленькой дочери.

His eyebrows were still black, and so was much of his hair; the sprinkling of grey observable among the latter, graced the former very much, and showed his broad frank brow and honest eyes to great advantage.
Брови у него были еще черные, черными были и волосы, но седина уже заметно их посеребрила и красиво оттеняла широкий чистый лоб и честные глаза.

The leg of mutton came up very red within, and very pale without: besides having a foreign substance of a gritty nature sprinkled over it, as if if had had a fall into the ashes of that remarkable kitchen fireplace.
Баранья нога была очень красная внутри, и очень бледная снаружи, да к тому же еще вся усыпана какими-то чужеродными крупинками, наводящими на мысль, что она свалилась прямо в золу прославленной кухонной печи.

The moon shone bright; a sprinkling of snow covered the ground, and I reflected that she might, possibly, have taken it into her head to walk about the garden, for refreshment.

When the priest had blessed it, sprinkling it crosswise, he returned it to Fortune, who slipped it upon Rosalie's finger. Her hand was still discoloured with grass-stains, which soap had not been able to remove.
Священник благословил его, обрызгав крест‑накрест святой водою, и возвратил Фортюне, а тот надел кольцо на безымянный палец Розали, с рук которой так и не удалось никаким мылом отмыть зеленых пятен – следов травы.

When I had moved farther on, he went up to the place where the wounded bird had fallen, bent down to the grass, on which some drops of blood were sprinkled, shook his head, and looked in dismay at me....
Когда же я отправился далее, он подошел к месту, где упала убитая птица, нагнулся к траве, на которую брызнуло несколько капель крови, покачал головой, пугливо взглянул на меня…

Father Christopher, not as he was in the chaise, but in his full vestments with the sprinkler in his hand, walked round the mill, sprinkling it with holy water, and it left off waving.
О. Христофор, не такой, каким он сидел в бричке, а в полном облачении и с кропилом в руке, прошелся вокруг мельницы, покропил ее святой водой и она перестала махать.

Her long little face sparkles all over, as if sprinkled with tinsel, and then a slow twirl of the Sunfish places their heads in the narrow clammy band of shadow the hull casts.
Ее маленькое вытянутое личико все искрится, будто присыпанное блестками; потом лодку начинает медленно разворачивать и головы их попадают в узкую полосу холодной тени от корпуса.
