Brown patina on seasoned cast iron skillets

I use hot water and scrub off any stuck on food with a stiff brush. Then I dry it on the stove and rub a light layer of safflower oil while it's still hot.

Brown patina on seasoned cast iron skillets

Hello!
I recently seasoned my cast iron skillets for the first time, and they have a noticeably brown patina on them. They look almost bronze-like instead of the black that is normally associated with cast iron skillets. Is there a way to get that black color without having to completely start the seasoning process all over again? More importantly, is it safe to eat out of?
