Cast Iron: Blue Discoloration

I just purchased a Rome, unseasoned, cast iron waffle iron. I did my best to remove all the wax and then begin seasoning. Unfortunately, after my first round of seasoning I noticed blue splotches on my waffle iron. My guess would be that some of the wax was not removed and ended up discoloring the cast iron.

Has anyone experienced this? Is there a way to fix it? Will it be safe to cook with?
